Angry Salmon

Sunday, August 21


20 – 21 August

Inspired by true stories, this funny and imaginative new musical is ‘The Little Mermaid’ meets ‘Family Guy’, bubbling with humour, filled with big characters, adventurous songs, inventive jumping between land and sea and with an important message behind about taking care of our planet. It reveals the story of salmon that are escaping from salmon farms in their masses. Ill-fit for life back in the wild, they are unable to find food, unable to migrate efficiently, and unable to care for their fellow salmon. And the salmon are angry.

In a big, cartoonish underwater world, the show follows the inhabitants of a thriving fish-farm, and the Di-Carprio’s – a family of salmon, who dream of life ‘upstream’. Leo (the eldest daughter), sick of life stuck inside the tanks, galvanizes the clan of salmon, and initiates a mass escape through a crack in the borders. Suddenly, they find themselves in the deep blue sea, with one aim: find their fellow salmon.

Brought to life by showstopper director Ali James and Cameron Mackintosh Resident Composer Jordan Clarke.
