Blak Yak theatre players rehearse 'Atomic The New Rock Musical'.


This is not quite your Guys And Dolls or Phantom of the Opera kind of musical, but rather, as described by Michigan's It's All Theatre in 2016, it's as a history lesson, a rock musical with a dramatic soundtrack that's thought-provoking and great entertainment.

The story revolves around brilliant physicist Leo Szilard, who discovers the secrets of atomic power but whose ethics and loyalty are tested as the Manhattan Project gets caught up in a billion dollar race to beat Germany to the bomb during World War II.

'Atomic' will be at Hamilton Hill Memorial Hall from March 14 to 23.


Leo and his fellow scientists battle to save their own humanity and the world.

When Germany surrendered to the allies without ever having used the weapons, the focus turned to Japan where America's brightest minds and brilliant refugee scientists fleeing the Nazis discovered the project was too big to stop.

But one man tried and Atomic tells the true story of the creation of the Atomic bomb underlined by a fabulous rock music score.
The musical is based on the book and lyrics of Danny Ginges with music and lyrics by WA musician Philip Foxman.

The full season of Atomic will run at the Hamilton Hill Memorial Hall on March 14, 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23 at 8pm with a matinee on March 17 at 1pm.

Atomic is directed by multi award-winning Lorna Mackie with musical director Joshua Haines.
