A Unique Collaboration
Changeling Theatre has become a thrilling staple of JAM on the Marsh with its compelling, fun and irreverent performances becoming festival highlights for our audience.
Kent’s renowned theatre company produces high quality, entertaining theatre in non-traditional locations and has performed at JAM on the Marsh every year since 2017, captivating the audience with productions of well-known works by Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde and Noël Coward.
JAM is delighted to have come together with Changeling to commission the music for their 2023 tour from Kent-born composer, James Aburn.
The unique partnership between JAM and Changeling celebrates two of the county’s finest art organisations and embraces JAM’s mission to create, collaborate and commission.
James has seen his music performed across the globe and has worked with world-renowned musicians including composers Morten Lauridsen and Sir James MacMillan, and performing at the BBC Proms under the baton of Marin Alsop and Sir Donald Runnicles. He currently teaches music and composition as the Assistant Director of Music at Bede’s Senior School in East Sussex, whilst concurrently working towards his PhD in composition at the University of Aberdeen under the supervision of the celebrated Royal Wedding and Coronation composer, Professor Paul Mealor.
Changeling’s unique take on the early Shakespearean comedy Love’s Labour’s Lost will kick off our 10th festival, as well as the company’s tour on Tuesday, 4 July at 7pm. They will then return to JAM on the Marsh on Thursday, 6 July for a performance of Sheridan’s entertaining masterpiece The School for Scandal.
