This year is the first time since its inception in 2001, that two touring casts of the smash hit musical phenomenon DRUM STRUCK will be traveling simultaneously to different parts of the world.  Co created and directed by MW Creative Director Kathy-Jo Wein, DRUM STRUCK has been a much loved show on the Japanese entertainment calendar for the past six years. This year, a second cast will be appearing on the Edinburgh Fringe at the coveted 770 seater the Assembly. DRUM STRUCK has a brilliant new book written by prodigious South African writing talent Stephen Francis. The tone is wickedly irreverent and funny in the style of Book of Mormon whilst maintaining it’s warm, engaging family appeal. All the brilliant musical numbers and interactive drumming scenes that have made this production unique are cleverly featured in the story of the Ubuntu Queen. Mega talent Tiny Modise plays the Ubuntu Queen and mesmerizing singer/song writer Wendy Oldfield is DRUM STRUCK Edinburgh’s quirky special surprise. The South African contributions to major international arts festivals, the biggest of which is Edinburgh, continues to make the MW team extremely proud and this year promises to be the best one yet.
