Volume 2: Ten terrific short musicals...
Video Victims has a TV which hypnotises everyone. Friends gather to watch a TV which takes control of their lives. Or is it a practical joke?
Write or Wrong stars pencils, pens, crayons and chalk. . All the characters are writing implements and they sing with gusto.
Kicked Out is all about girls playing football. An all-female cast where conversation turns to sport and why some games are exclusively male.
Nursery Times has well-known characters from nursery rhymes meeting at the unemployment office.
Blazing Fables is riotous cowboy/girl comedy where the women sit at the tables playing cards while the cowboys flit around serving lemonade.
Davy Jones’ Locker is set on the bottom of the sea. This nautical mini musical stars Octopus, Dolphin, Sardine, Snapper, Tuna, Shark, Crab and many other fishy folk.
Martian Madness involves visitors from you-know-where and when Earthlings land on Mars we’re not sure who is the more crazy. The main question seems to be, “Can you buy a Mars Bar on Mars?”
Surprise Spectacular is a showbiz Busby Berkeley mini musical to get your feet tapping. Two friends wander on to the stage of an old abandoned theatre. It’s one friend’s birthday and suddenly a spot is turned on and a piano starts playing and a surprise birthday treat of a troupe of dancers appears.
Runaway Train is really a radio play-come-musical with great sound effects. It’s the story of a train with many passengers - a parrot, horses, school kids, guard etc. Some of the kids climb aboard the steam locomotive and the train takes off. The guard is furious, the parrot won’t shut up, the horses go hoarses while the kids scream. Great percussive and vocal fun.
Finally there’s an opera which lasts about 123 seconds. It’s all about tragic love arias where the heroine is dying but manages to rip off a 500 bar ditty complete with trills and glissandos. It’s called She Always Takes Ages To Die and you need a hero and heroine and of course a company. Brief, very funny and all sung.
