A topical, light-hearted look at the pop music business, charting the turbulent rise to fame of a fictitious band -- Freedom. During a live performance at Wembley, the five young stars take us back to the beginning, revealing the gritty truth.

All music is pre-recorded with the backing tracks available to hire. No live musicians are needed.


"It's hard to wipe the smile off your face when Peter Quilter's new musical suddenly rocks into dazzling, deafening action... a song-and-dance workout of awesome laser-guided precision -- It would be hard to find a tighter, more electric show than BoyBand."

Sunday Times, London

"The audience screamed the place down... a triumph!"
