The Runaway Company


An organization where passionate, music-and-theatre-loving youths will look at and say unreservedly: “this is something that I can see myself joining.”

Regardless of what background they come from. No matter what they want to do in the future. That they can say I love what these people have done and I want to be a part of that too.


Small Team, Big Dream

We want to harness music as a form of storytelling. When we put music and theatre together, it has the power to make life's simplest moments into something extraordinary. This integration of music and theatre is our attempt at exploring a new form of collaboration between musicians and theatre performers and open us up to a whole new world of possibilities.

Wilderness 2019 Recruitment

As part of our August production, The Runaway Company will be staging “Wilderness” by Seth Bockley and Anne Hamburger. Set in a outdoor therapy programme for troubled youth, “Wilderness” tells and documents the stories of youths struggling with the demons of depression, anxiety, self-harm, bullying and addiction amongst others.

We are trying something new with Wilderness. While previous productions of The Runaway Company have taken the form of revue-style productions and an original musical, Wilderness would be our first attempt in creating music theatre: where we harness the potential of music, in an otherwise straight play (non-musical plays), as another avenue for telling stories. The music will be classically driven, raw and experimental.

As a company committed to telling stories through both music and theatre, “Wilderness” will mark another milestone for the company as we stage a music theatre piece for the first time.
