The Highwayman is the sixth successful musical from John Gleadall & Greg Mosse - an exciting, atmospheric and memorable story of 18th-century highway robbery, love, poverty and wealth. It played a sold-out run in January 2019.
Like Daisy & Marvin Save the Day, their last Dynamo Youth Theatre musical, The Highwyaman is packed with memorable 'singable' songs. The exciting story ends with with an extraordinary tragic climax - all of it inspired by the wonderful narrative poem of the same name by Alfred Noyes
John says: 'There is nothing like a Dynamo Youth Theatre show. The energy and talent are exceptional. The young people have skill and initiative. They are performers, directors, singers, dancers and choreographers. It is an honour to write for them and to see them work.'
Greg says: 'John and DYT director Andrew Bowker started work on The Highwayman, then very generously invited me to help develop their scenes and ideas into a full, sung-through script. It has been a complete pleasure. No one could ask for better collaborators.'
