The Kastle - MMuDS show for 2020
The Kastle is an original musical written by Will Twycross to be staged May 2020.
The Kastle. A Bonnie Doon Pub Rock Musical!
After the success of re-writing the Life of Brian for the stage, two
years ago, MMuDS has decided to have a go at the Australian comedy classic, "The Castle".
Set in Bonnie Doon, the story will include all your favourite characters and well known quotes from the original, but with a sequel story line involving the next generation of Kerrigans and their children. The nextgen family move to live under the power-lines at Bonnie Doon, but run into the same "compulsory acquisition" court battles as their parents, with lots of surprises along the way, and a twist in the tail at the end.
We are hoping to put about 20 school age children and a similar number of adults on stage, with lots of chorus parts, singing and involvement. The actors will be backed by a Pub Rock Band led by Rolf Koren ... name your favourite Pub Rock song .. it's probably in this show, which will also feature the sort of home grown videos you may remember from the Lyfe of Bryan, but more of them, so being in the show will not only happen on the stage. Extras will be welcome to film shoots.
