“Kakadu the Musical” is an exciting, inspirational and moving experience that takes its name from the famous lagos night club of the sixties, which gave birth to an era of wonderful music and the distinctive social life that followed the birthing of a young nation.
Set against the background of a newly independent Nigeria “brimming with hope, dreams and expectations”, characters like the Manager of Kakadu, Lugard da Rocha, fondly called “Lord Lugard” takes us on a spectacular musical expedition that delves deep into the human stories that connect and weave through Kakadu, the club and the dream it represents.
With the unforgettable music of the sixties and seventies intricately woven into the dialogue, we travel through this journey guided by a rich and diverse choral arrangement.
