Destiny The Musical


Thank you to everyone who attended Destiny - the Musical, on Wednesday 6th December, 2017. More than 270 people filled the Cessnock Performing Arts Centre to watch the original musical theatre production. 

The musical has been a labour of love for the Mai-Wel Creative Arts business unit over the last two years, and is the brainchild of Steve Burchill and Steph Bridges who make up SB ² Productions. 

The musical was funded by an Accessible Arts NSW Delineate Arts Grant, with the goal of promoting inclusive musical theatre. This two year project has provided leadership and mentoring opportunities for artists with and without a disability to get involved  in an original musical theatre production.

Steve Burchill, Creative Arts Facilitator at Mai-Wel has been a driving force in promoting inclusive musical theatre for the Hunter. 

“The musical has been a fantastic experience to create a shared stage for artists with and without disability. Theatre and the arts has no boundaries and exclusions and is all about collaboration”, said Steve.  Steph Alderton was one of the 26 members of the musical and part of the main ensmeble. 

“I love muscial theatre and being part of this muscial has given me the opportunity to meet new people and try new experiences”, said Steph.

The night finished with a standing ovation from the crowd and requests for additional performances.Thank you to everyone involved in bringing this musical dream to life.
