Anders wrote his first musical "Dacke" in 1992
- 1993, together with lyricist Lasse Johanson.
The musical's story is about Sweden's most
famous uprising in 1542 - 1543. The rebel
leader Nils Dacke nearly managed to throw
king Gustav Wasa of his thrown. We follow one
of the most dramatic years in Swedens history
from the rebel's perspective. The musical were
staged in August 1993 at the same place were
Nils Dacke so successfully led his men from,
Kronoberg's castle. The musical became a huge suceess
with very good reviews from both audince
and critics. In 1994 it was also staged
at the same place and the cast also moved
it to Borgholm's castle for a couple shows.
Samples of the songs from
"Dacke" and the other musicals could be found in the download section.
The 15 songs from the show is also captured on a CD entitled;
The Millenium show
In 1999 the town of Växjö held a competion for writing a millenium song. Anders
and Lasse won the competion with there song; "Not
in a thousand years". At the price cermony Anders
suggested that the town should celebrate the millenium
by giving a big concert with a mini-musical about
the last thousand years in the towns history. The
politicians liked the idea and Anders and Lasse
were commissioned to write the show. The one hour
min-musical were staged at the towns square of
Växjö New Years eve 1999 at
17.00 and filled the whole town square with people.
Approximately 5 000 - 6 000 people went there to
new millenium together with Anders, Lasse and there
Anders and Lasse started to think about writing a new musical almost immediately
after the success with "Dacke". Choreographer Pamela
Wood suggested that they should check out the building
of a new East-India sailship in Gothenburg. Both
Anders And Lasse were fasinated over the story
about the original ship "Gothenburg" that between 1743 - 1745 sailed
to China and back and sunk only 900 metres from
it's goal, the harbour in the town of Gothenburg.
Anders and Lasse wrote the first songs in 1994 but then the
work halted. It wasn't until the year of 2001
they pulled themselves together and finally completed
the musical. Premiere in November 2002 at Växjö
Concert House and it ran for 2 months.
All the 19 songs from Compagniet are released on a CD.
