Sun of Jamaica – The New Oldies Musical

Inspired by a similar musical production in Hamburg, our first musical was created in 2002/03. 'Sun of Jamaica' has been performed to great success a full 13 times by now. And who knows – there just might be a comeback some day...

The story:

Who does not harbor unfulfilled wishes, dreams and hopes? Look for example at Lena, Harry and Benno, who one day happen to meet at a train station just when they are about to leave their old lives behind them to seek a new future.

After the end of her relationship with her boyfriend, Lena finally is ready to apply for an international scholarship. Harry certainly is not willing to end like his father, who has spent his entire life at a manufacturing company. He believes that his dream of becoming a surf instructor in the US is just about to become true. Benno is sick and tired of country life, anyway, and feels that his dream of playing in a band can only be fulfilled in the city.

Soon, the three realize that they are not the only dreamers out there. Others too harbor their own secret hopes.

Will Lena, Harry and Benno succeed in realizing their dreams?
