Beacon the musical

BeaconFilled with rhythm, toe tapping tunes and loveable characters, this new steampunk inspired tap musical will play at Melbourne’s Guild Theatre for a limited season from 13 June 2014.

Inhabitants of an alternate realm have fallen out of touch with their souls. Their lives are now in danger as a creature has been discovered travelling the universe and consuming lives where souls are not strong enough to resist.
