Meant To Be (the musical!)

Meant To Be logoMeant To Be is the story of a Year 12 girl, Michelle, who has just moved to the city with her dad, Tom, who is a teacher, and her brother. Though she didn’t really want to move, she soon joins a rock band at her new school and falls in love with the band’s lead singer, Adam. Her dad’s reason for moving in the first place was that he wanted to meet someone new (since he has been single for quite a few years). He meets Meagan, also single and also a teacher at his new school, but it turns out that she is Adam’s mum! The two kids, particularly Michelle, think that they need to stop their parents’ relationship from taking off or they will become brother and sister, hence dooming their own relationship.

With intermission, Meant To Be goes for about two hours. The show is full of great rock/pop songs, funny dialogue, plenty of opportunities to choreograph dance routines, and, because it is set in a modern school, fairly easy to stage!
