Rock Academy is a Performing Arts college based in Lossiemouth and in 2014 were approached by producer David Gest to create a musical about the life of the Scottish poet Robert Burns an idea originally conceived by him and the king of pop Michael Jackson in 1996. So when given the task of creating the new version of the musical, creative director Tish Tindall felt musical theatre had moved on, so she went about creating an entirely new concept for the story along with a completely original musical score. As an educator Tish wanted to appeal to a more modern audience with the hope that it would inspire a new generation of Burns fans. The show premiered on January the 25th 2015 in the Tivoli Theatre Aberdeen to a sell-out performance receiving a 10 minute standing ovation and rave reviews and this is its first visit to the Universal Hall.
