Books That Deserve To Set The Stage ( Open List )

#1 A Wrinkle In Time

Ah, a classic. You may have read Madeleine L'Engle's bestseller from when you were young, or may have watched the recent movie released only a month ago. A tale for young and old that could easily have some heartwarming songs and dazzling affects, why not believe in it?

#2 Fantastic Mr Fox

Many Roald Dahl stories including Matilda, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and others have put themselves in the theatre spotlight and impressed audiences around the world. With an engaging cast of characters, exciting plot and locations filled with stage potential, it would make a show for the whole family to enjoy.

    • Yeah, it’s on right now at my local theatre, but it’s sadly not a musical. It would be awesome if it had it’s own soundtrack!

#3 The Snow Angel

The Snow Angel is a brand new book about an African girl called Makena who faces many struggles and learns about new hope. With realistic, sad origins and a tear-worthy plot, the reader is embraced in the story and feels the same pain, hope and speechless moments that Makena does. Now, imagine this book turned into a theatrical extravaganza that leaves audience members on the edge of their seats!

#4 A Series of Unfortunate Events

If you've read this series, you already know why it deserve a musical re-boot. (Netflix is helping us out with their new show) A musical would most certainly live up to Lemony Snicket's aurora of mystery and chaos. With the right cast and new and interesting music, this Series could be one of the best!

#5 Crime and Punishment

Ok here me out. I can see a musical like this being a darker version of Les Mis with chilling ballads and some incredible sets and lighting.

#6 The Hunger Games

If you haven't heard of The Hunger Games, you've probably been living under a rock for the last 10 years. Everything about this screams rock-musical! Anyone feeling a concert-style musical, like Jesus Christ Superstar? The storyline is very theatrical and Katniss is the futuristic version of Elphaba!
