Musicals are one of the world's most popular art forms. They are also one of the world's most misunderstood. Growing up obsessed with musicals, Dr Drama (theatre lecturer James Wenley) knows what it is like to feel misunderstood.

In this toe tapping meta-musical, Dr Drama spills all the secrets about how musicals are made whilst exploring what his own love for musicals reveals about his values, asexuality and life decisions.

Whether you're a musical fan or foe, you'll learn something new from Dr Drama's musical masterclass. A show about what we value and why, Dr Drama asks: what's really worth making a song and dance about?

Following the NZ Fringe and Auckland Fringe seasons of Dr Drama Makes A Show (2020) and Dr Drama Makes a Show With You (2021), Dr Drama Makes a Musical completes the Dr Drama trilogy. Dr Drama brings James’s university teaching together with his theatre practice, resulting in smart, surprising, thought-provoking theatre experiences.
