What do a cheerleader, a science geek, a sports jock and a hardcore emo all have in common? They’re all members of the Legend Trippers; a group of unlikely high school heroes who band together to conquer their town's most haunted spots and sites. But when a new girl comes to town, the Trippers ﬁnd themselves in a legend of their own…
Noisemaker were thrilled to be commissioned by the National Youth Music Theatre to create a brand new musical for their 2019 Season.
LEGEND TRIPPERS is an action-packed adventure for young people that explores not only the legends we’re passed on, but the ones we’re making today.
The show premiered this August at The Other Palace in London, featuring a cast of 29 exceptional young people from all across the UK.
We’re delighted to announce that a live cast recording from The Other Palace production will be available very soon! For now, click here for a preview of the “Legend Trippers Theme”.
LEGEND TRIPPERS is a two act musical running at 2 hours 10 minutes. It is written for a cast of between 15 and 30, depending on the scale of production. For any questions or enquiries regarding licensing please contact us at: email@example.com
Below are some audience reactions from the run at The Other Palace.

@EamonnODwyer “It was SENSATIONAL. Like the Goonies with songs, but also ALL the feels in the second half, and a hugely relevant comment on the state of the nation.”

@tomramsay_ “Go see this utterly uplifting new musical! A hugely pertinent story about division and fear of “outsiders”, and how failing to listen & learn from the past means a lesser future” https://twitter.com/tomramsay_/status/1161970981780500480

“theatreland has been overwhelmed in the last couple of years with plays about immigration and intolerance and consequent political ramifications of every angle concerning them, this entertaining new musical tackles the subject in an enthralling and original way almost without you realising.” http://bit.ly/30aybZT
