Teenagers Chelsea, Elyse, Halle and Josh share their dreams and confront their challenges on and off stage in the lead up to the performance of the musical staged by their high school for students living with disabilities.
The Time Travelling Trio musical is the story of students who visit Australian national treasure John Farnham over four decades from the 60s to the 90s while doing an assignment on the singer. Music teacher Darcy Nolan and drama teacher Lori Nichols are the jukebox musical’s co-creators and school facilities manager Tony Rains is on board as the veteran producer. All are firm believers in the power of performance and theatre to inspire confidence, spark connections and create fun.
In the countdown to curtain-up, these four students have the love and support of family and teachers as they face crises of confidence, health issues and the momentous and ordinary rituals of teen life.
