THE RECORDING

After it's successful première earlier this summer, we are making an Original Cast Recording of new musical, THE BATTLE OF BOAT, by composer Ethan Maltby and lyricist Jenna Donnelly. It's a heartwarming, funny, emotional and exciting story, that follows the adventures of a group of children in 1916, trying to find their place in a world at war. 

We are very excited to announce that plans are already underway for THE BATTLE OF BOAT to be professionally recorded, mixed and mastered in the award-winning Crown Lane Studio in London. The recording sessions will be taking place in early 2017 and we are looking to raise £3,000 to cover the costs of CD production and instrument hire.
The album will contain the music of the entire show, and will be presented as a double-CD with a glossy booklet.

All profits made from the selling of this cast recording will go back to NYMT to support the fantastic work they do.
