The July Project

15 - 16 July 2022 (Tapere Nui, Te Auaha, 65 Dixon Street, Wellington)

WITCH Music Theatre presents The July Project; a modern song cycle performed by a vibrant company of actor-musicians, featuring a driving setlist of acoustic musical theatre masterpieces.

Running the gamut of contemporary conversions, The July Project draws you into the complicated minds of an ensemble of seemingly everyday folk, stuck at their own crossroads in life. Explored through a beautiful and often humorous series of musical vignettes, we unpack their collective desires for connection, clarity, and meaning in this touching song cycle filled with passionate and authentic storytelling.

Featuring songs written by acclaimed and award-winning composers such as Jason Robert Brown (Bridges of Madison County, Songs for a New World), Sara Bareilles (Waitress, Little Voice) and Tim Minchin (Matilda, Groundhog Day), The July Project takes audiences on a sincere and amusing journey through some of life’s modern foibles and idiosyncrasies.

With a cast of fourteen performers, playing instruments alongside a four-piece band, The July Project is a stirring showcase of incredible musicianship and performance.
