Aadyam, an Aditya Birla Group Theatre Initiative, proudly presents India's first reality show musical, an original production titled #SingIndiaSing! Story and lyrics by Rahul daCunha & Bugs Bhargava Krishna and music composed by Clinton Cerejo.
#SingIndiaSing explores today fascination with making it big at all costs. In other words, how far will a person go for success?
The musical is set in a singing show, a talent contest where only four singers who are picked from thousands of aspirants, are pitted against each other. These are `wannabe` singers who come from all over India, wanting to make it in Bollywood as playback singers or as performers. It`s a tough show. Where their personality is tested along with their singing.
The rules are ruthless... because there are no rules.
There are cameras everywhere. And nothing from their past is a secret. It`s a reality show with song, colorful musical numbers, extraordinary staging, and lots of comic fun. The journey of these four young hopefuls is made even more unpredictable and exciting by audience reactions and the judge`s plan.
The four aspirants are Vishnu (a true blue rocker from Pune), Kitty who is a sexy bar dancer from Dharavi, Jazzy (whose real name is Jayashankar Iyer) who combines Carnatic rhythms with Rap, and, Shweta whose face is covered.
The judges are Channel who owns the TV station DHOOM DHAM TV that produces the show, Rocky Singh who is a washed-up music composer and Dolly who is a show host and an ex-journalist who digs up dirt from the contestants’ past.
Will these young people discover there are greater things in the world than just celebrity and applause? Or will they lose themselves in thsearch for victory?
The musical score encompasses hip hop, item numbers, indie rock, contemporary, soul and pop. #SingIndiaSing is spectacle with a perfect blend of story and song.
