Whistle Down The Wind, based on the 1961 film of the same name and novel by Mary Hayley Bell, took the original story and reset it in Louisiana in 1959, with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by acclaimed rock n roll songwriter Jim Steinman.

America, 1959. Change is in the air. The post war boom is thriving, the civil rights movement is growing and the golden age of television has begun. But, on a farm in rural Louisiana three children are hoping for a miracle.

When Swallow, a teenager struggling to come to terms with the death of her mother, discovers a man hiding out in the family barn she becomes convinced he is Jesus. In a town where the community will do anything to defend their way of life, the children unite with their friends to protect their saviour from the town’s grown-ups. As fantasy and reality collide, Swallow begins to discover who she is and what it means to grow up.

In this thrilling musical, a cast of pupils from the High School of Dundee bring to life Lloyd Webber’s emotive score featuring hit songs including ‘No Matter What’ (Boyzone), ‘When Children Rule The World’ (Donny Osmond) and ‘Whistle Down The Wind’ (Tina Arena).
