Music promoter Kilimanjaro Live and theatre producer Joshua Andrews have joined forces to create a new company focusing on UK and international theatre.
Kilimanjaro Theatricals will develop its own works as well as partnering with a number of co-producers to stage work overseas.
Andrews previously launched a joint venture with fellow producer Michael McCabe in 2015, but this company – Andrews McCabe – is listed as having dissolved in 2018.
Kilimanjaro Live is headed up by founder Stuart Galbraith, who said the company had “wanted to land into the world of theatre and musical theatre for several years”.
Andrews, whose theatre work includes the Peter James stage franchise and projects such as Fat Friends – the Musical, will continue to independently produce his existing portfolio.
Andrews said: “Stuart and I have been talking about this idea for some time and I am delighted to now be starting this journey with him and the talented Kilimanjaro team.
“We believe that by combining our varied skills, experience and relationships we can create an exciting and successful new theatrical enterprise and we look forward to developing our own works as well as co-producing with others around the world.”
Kilimanjaro Live is part of the Kilimanjaro Group, which also owns Thriller Live producer Flying Music and Scotland’s Belladrum Festival.
