About the Musical



Composer


Maggie Jemmett was heading for a career in medicine, when she suddenly changed course and instead plumped for a career in what she loved – music!

 

Having spent three years at The Royal College of Music, studying piano and oboe, she reluctantly applied for a teaching course at St Mark and St John College in London. Not only did she find that she loved the challenge of teaching, but she also met the love of her life, Kevin. God had his plans!


Throughout her life she has not only been involved in teaching music in schools (as an instrumental teacher, a specialist music teacher, a primary teacher and a music advisory teacher) and also in her leisure time within a church setting (leading worship, writing songs for kid’s clubs and directing musicals.)

 

In her final few years of teaching Maggie ran a drama academy and conducted the Brighton and Hove Community Choir: probably the most fun time of her career. It seems that God has combined all her gifts so that they were ready for writing this musical.

 

(Resumé: Royal College of Music; music teacher and music advisory teacher; conductor, Brighton and Hove Community Choir; director of a Drama Academy; and  led musicals performed at the Ascension in Brighton.)

Setting


From the colourful scenes of a Saint Patrick’s day parade, we travel back in time to hear Patrick himself describing the incredible life he lived, from wealthy teenage rebel, to a slave held captive by raiders.  We relive Patrick’s dramatic dream that set in motion events that turned Ireland upside down!
