Darwin Rocks!

Updated: Sep 29, 2023


This story about the work of Charles Darwin informs with fun and inspires change for good.

From the writer of the hit comedy musical "Shakespeare Rocks!" comes the next step in the series' evolution.

Steve Titford reprises his acclaimed formula of creating a feel-good show for everyone whilst helping to enthuse young people about an important national curriculum subject.

The pacy script pops with good-natured humour and flamboyant characters - mixed in with seven stirring songs that burst with fresh energy.

The result is a singalong sensation - handling Darwinism carefully for thinkers from all walks of life. School musicals have evolved: Darwin Rocks!
