An original musical about living life to the fullest...while there's still time.
"Disasteroid!" was a spur of the moment idea. It wasn't even conceived until December of 2011, but that conception snowballed into a giant snow boulder of progress that's headed for the edge of the cliffs of fruition and landing into the Underground Theater August 10th, 2012. We've got a great cast, some fine musicians (including a tuba player!) and a healthy sense of adventure.
"Disasteroid!" tells the tale of Alfred Edgley, a career tax auditor who's given a shot at some excitement when astronomers at the local observatory trick him into thinking the end of the world is rapidly approaching. Naturally, he runs off and travels the world with the wealthy philanthropist, Mabel Bellcoat, much to the chagrin of his boss, the stern Ms. Stern, and also Mr. Bellcoat. His co-worker, Petty, meanwhile, dreams only of finding a nice backyard. Featuring music and lyrics by the vivacious and charming one-man band, The Bicycats.
As frugal as we're trying to be, theater is undeniably expensive. Your support will go a long way to covering the costs of renting the theater, rehearsal space, sound equipment, lighting, and skilled crew members.
We've got some nifty rewards over on the side bar, but the first reward is yours for FREE. It's a music video we made from our original song, "Be With Me." Thanks for your support, and happy kicking.
