Pump Up The Volume is a new rock musical based on the classic ‘90s coming-of-age film starring Christian Slater.

Set in 1990, Pump Up The Volume tells the story of Mark, a shy outsider who rocks an oppressive, small town by launching an underground Pirate Radio station in his bedroom. By day, Mark’s a quiet loner at Hubert Humphrey High… but, under cover of darkness, he is the raucous, no-holds-barred, shock jock “Hard Harry,” howling anonymously over stolen airwaves to other alienated teens desperate for connection.

When tragedy strikes a classmate, the powers-that-be blame the hard-talking radio pirate and try to hunt him down. Soon, Mark must decide whether to sign off for good or Pump Up The Volume.

All performances as part of MTFestUK 2023 will be presented in an abridged workshop format, with scripts in hand.
