Wakaa! The musical is an epic show. Period.
The entire production was a thing of pride, from the performances, to the set, to the lighting, even the audience.
Wakaa! The Musical is a play about the trials, successes and experiences of young graduates with varied backgrounds, a wager between them after graduation has a twist when the realities of life and the folly of their choices hit them. Eventually they reunite, coming full circle.
The story reveals the struggles and challenges young people face in present day Nigeria and abroad. WAKAA! The Musical takes you on an emotional roller coaster and is a strong satire of the Nigeria’s politics.
Produced by Bolanle Austen-Peters and performed live at the Terra Kulture Arena two days in a row during the easter holidays, the show illustrates the power of creativity and sheer resilience, especially in the theater industry, a genre that has been in the shadows of the Film and Music industry in Nigeria.
In case you missed it, the last showing of the year is this weekend 30th, April 2017 at the Ultra-modern Terra Kulture Arena in Victoria Island, Lagos.
