Dedicated to the Business of Contemporary Live Music

Theatrical move for Kilimanjaro

12 April 2019

KILIMANJARO LIVE has joined forces with theatre producer Joshua Andrews to launch a dedicated division branded Kilimanjaro Theatricals.

The joint venture will produce and co-produce theatrical productions across the UK and overseas.

Among Andrews’ current projects are 9 To 5: The Musical, which is running in London’s Savoy Theatre (cap. 1,158), Muriel’s Wedding – The Musical, showing in three cities in Australia, and Hadestown on New York’s Broadway.

The venture follows the £5 million acquisition of a 60 per cent stake show producer and promoter Flying Music Group in 2017 (see LIVE UK issue 212), backed by Kilimanjaro parent company, the German live entertainment conglomerate Deutsche Entertainment AG (DEAG).

“Kilimanjaro has wanted to land into the world of theatre and musical theatre for several years,” says Kilimanjaro founder and CEO Stuart Galbraith. “We are hugely excited to combine our ambitions with Josh’s excellent skills and experience in this new venture.”
