Music has the power to Unify People, Spark Change, Inspire Peace, End Wars    


During the Covid years the development of the What About Us stage experience kicked off in Ireland.
In 2020 online workshops under the guidance of Artistic Director Seimi Campbell, the founder of the Irish Youth musical Theatre (IYMT), commenced. Over 60 young talented artists tuned in each Saturday morning and contributed to the workshops which focused on concepts and ideas for a story as well as the development of conflict-based themes which included the causes and consequences of war.  

The end of Covid brought the artists together, in-person, for the first time

In the summer of 2021, as the Covid threat was diminishing, 5 weeks of in-residence creative development and workshops took place in the Irish Institute of Music and Song (IIMS) in Balbriggan, Dublin.
Seimi worked with 20 young artists developing song, dance, story, and stage themes and was supported by top West End talent including Theatre Director Sally Cookson and Choreographer James Cousins.
The workshops were a great example of how young talented artists can take concepts and ideas and mould them into original music, song, and dance.

Upcoming creative development in Ireland

The two most important core Q1 2024 deliverables are the completion of the story and the parallel development of the vision for the stage show, under the guidance of West End professionals.

Music focused workshops are also taking place in IIMS in January 2024.  7/8 songs will be developed for specific characters and scenes with professional musicians and singers working alongside a small selection of composers and lyricists.  

Once the story and artistic vision is nailed down intense music, song and lyric development will commence in Q2, building on Q1 progress.
