Sky News: The Musical
by Pond Productions
Joint 2016 Winners
8:57am at Sky News. Everyone is getting ready for the 9am broadcast. As the newsreaders compare headlines one thing is clear – they thrive on bad news. But what if - just for one hour, due to a technical hitch - there was nothing bad to report? They’d be left with the ‘human interest’ stories normally reserved for the end of each hour. Based on real-life stories from Sky News broadcasts, this show sets these stories to music.
A hysterical but poignant reminder that the stories within each human life are infinitely more interesting.
The performance took place on Friday 28 October 2016 at St Mary's Hall Studio Theatre, to a sold out audience.
