Reasons to be Cheerful: Make a Protest Song for Your Generation!

The renowned Graeae Theatre Company is inviting you to get involved with the Reasons to be Cheerful tour and create a protest song to be played at NST Campus when the gritty, coming of age musical comes to us from 26-30 September!

If you’d like to be involved, individually or as a group, simply write a protest song to fire up the audience and send it to Jodi-Alissa Bickerton at [email protected] or call 020 7613 6900.

To set you on your way, you can request a copy of Graeae’s exclusive song writing guide from Jodi, or contact Tracey Cruickshank at [email protected] to book an introductory Reasons to be Cheerful workshop for professional song writing tips and ideas.

Workshops are available for booking on the following dates and can be arranged so we can come to you or you can come to us:

Thursday 10th August 

Thursday 31 August

Friday 1 September 

If you’d like some professional song-writing tips and ideas to help with creating your protest song, we’ll be running a FREE song writing workshop here at NST on Friday 1 September 10am – 12noon. Please contact Tracey Cruickshank: [email protected] to book your place!

Graeae is seeking participation from across all members of the community, believing that with the right access to support and creative opportunity, everyone can tell their story, create their song and lead a change.

Songs can be in any format accessible for you, including signed song, lyric videos and audio recordings.

Happy writing and good luck!
