Description:

Ebola the Musical is a black comedy musical show with song, dance and sketches.


A local translator follows her dream to study musical theatre and must move to Tampere, a city known for its rivalry with Turku. She confronts her own insecurities and begins to question the point of doing something as irrelevant as entertaining people. Finally, she realizes that it’s much more fun to die of laughter than of Ebola.

The main ingredient in the show is music. On top of existing comedy musical numbers and songs with new lyrics, the show boasts a brand-new miniature musical with lyrics by Anna-Maija Ihander and composed by the up and coming musical theatre director and composer Martin Segerstråle.


The performing company consists mainly of students and recent alumni from Tampere University of applied sciences’ Musical Theatre program. The show is in Finnish with English surtitles.

Paikallinen kääntäjä seuraa sydäntään ja aloittaa musiikkiteatterin opiskelut viholliskaupungissaan Tampereella. Hänen on kuitenkin kohdattava epävarmuutensa ja kyseenalaisen ihmisen viihdyttämisen tärkeyden. Lopulta hän tajuaa, että nauruun on hauskempi kuolla kuin ebolaan. Esitys koostuu vanhoista musikaalihelmistä uusin sanoin sekä uudesta musiikista.

En lokal översättare följer sitt hjärta och börjar studera musikalteater i fiendestaden Tammerfors. Hon måste möta sina osäkerheter och börjar även ifrågasätta poängen i att underhålla människan. Hon konstaterar slutligen att det ändå är roligare att dö i skratt än i ebola. Showen består av gamla musikalnummer med nya texter samt nyskriven musik.
