Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society Palindrome: The Musical

Musicals & Opera


Nestled in the heart of a highland community, the local Glenelg Post Office is on the brink of going out of business. The world is changing and putting pen to paper to send letters is becoming a thing of the past. When a huge new packaging and delivery warehouse springs up in the once peaceful village, what was the heart of the community risks being lost to the reality of world that is moving forwards at a faster pace than the town can keep up with.

Working on the warehouse production line, however, is the postie’s daughter, Hannah. Hannah has always seen things a little differently, because to her, everything is backwards. Her ups are down and lefts are rights. While all her life she has felt like she was always the wrong way round, when she sees her mother’s life turned upside-down by the changes in her town, Hannah along with her two best friends have to find a way to move forwards in a backwards world.
