Synopsis


Set in the near future, Rasputin Rocks! features an insane Russian emperor who's been diagnosed with a terminal illness and decides to take the whole world with him in a global nuclear armageddon.


He has also discovered that the legendary mad monk Rasputin has never in fact died.


After Rasputin's would-be assassins failed to kill him, they instead froze him in a vast underground icy prison, which the Emperor has now located and released him from to aid him in his evil plan.


Only hero of the free world Tony Blair and a ragtag group of revolutionaries led by Svetlana who are obsessed with the cheesier aspects of Western culture stand between them and the end of the world.


"We've written this show to appeal to both fans of hard rock and heavy metal music as well as musical theatre," says composer Alistair Smith.


"We've got classic rock, doo-wop, country, funk, pop and even a hint of Russian death metal in a fun eclectic score to suit every taste!”
