Live music firm Kilimanjaro Live has announced a new partnership that will allow it to move further into all things theatrical. The alliance is with theatre producer Joshua Andrews and the new venture is called, simply, Kilimanjaro Theatricals.

The new London-based unit will produce its own theatre shows and also partner with other producers on theatrical projects. It launches with three productions in progress, the West End run of ‘9 To 5: The Musical’, a Melbourne outing of ‘Muriel’s Wedding: The Musical’ and Broadway project ‘Hadestown’.

Confirming the new venture, Kilimanjaro Live CEO Stuart Galbraith: “Kilimanjaro Group has wanted to land into the world of theatre and musical theatre for several years. We are hugely excited to combine our ambitions with Josh’s excellent skills and experience in this new venture”.

Kilimanjaro already has some links with the theatrical world since its parent company DEAG bought musical theatre maker the Flying Music Group in 2017.
