Poster: Around the World

After the success of The Curse of Shadow’s Edge • Return of the Vampires the Broadway Company presents her newest musical: Around the World • The Search for the Light.

It’s the year 2088. The rich decide the direction and destroy the environment for the quick profit. But there’s also the “inner world” in which the guardians and sentinels of the earth live.

By coincidence Helene, an energised Viennese girl, meets a boy from this inner world and by accident steps into a secret portal into his world. After few misunderstandings the inhabitants of the inner world recognise the Helene is a “bearer of light”. She is send back into her world to save the healing light before it can be misused by the profit-greedy outer worlders.

Helene starts and travels through different countries in the world and meets like-minded young people who join her on her search for the light. Together they experience many adventures and master several hurdles.

Will they find the true light and return with it the good? Come, and find out for yourself.

With songs from the musicals “Jekyll & Hyde”, “Lion King”, “Moulin Rouge”, “Romeo & Julia” and sweeping hits of Michael Jackson, Queen, Shakira, Snow Patrol and Silbermond.

Sung, danced and performed by talented kids and teenagers between 8 and 21 years and students of the Broadway Dance Academy, who studied since half a year with experienced musical and stage professionals. Together with their famous colleagues they created a musical with great numbers, which is presented in the theater.

Don’t Dream It.
Be It.
