About

'GET ON WITH IT' A musical about life through my eyes.

In the last few years I have decided to start putting my thoughts into written word, I have lived with cerebral palsy my whole life and although on the outside I am severely disabled, on the inside my thoughts are very clear.

I produced a piece of writing about living life through my eyes which was then recorded by an actress and aired on BBC Radio 4's 'Four Thought'

With a lot of great feedback and support from my close friends and family, the success of the BBC show led me on to produce my second piece of creative writing.

I have co-written a play called 'GET ON WITH IT' with the talented Craig Christie who has helped me put my words into a musical and we aim to take it to the Edinburgh Fringe 2016. We have everything ready to go, cast, venue, sound, light, I just need to get some investment to help me get there!

Please see the link below that shows a teaser of the first reading of my show, I am hoping that, once we gain some interest and put on the show in Edinburgh, I would like to take the show to Australia and beyond.

With Craig's help I really want to bring my show to life in all its glory at the fringe festival this year! August the 5th to the 29th, a full month, I'm so excited to make this happen.

Please show your support and help me get there!

GET ON WITH IT!!

Many thanks

Amy

------------------

GET ON WITH IT is a musical exploration and celebration of the world of Amy Golden, a young woman who lives with profound cerebral palsy but whose life is rich, poignant and often hilarious.

Part autobiography and part fiction, this new musical is the result of the collaboration between London based Amy and Australian musical theatre writer Craig Christie.It weaves its way through episodes from Amy’s life, issues that she must contend with on a day to day basis, the antics of friends, family and people she encounters and some profound and poignant observations explored through beautiful imagery and song of her life as it is as well as how she wishes it could be.

GET ON WITH IT is a challenging, enlightening and ultimately uplifting theatrical event that will make anyone who experiences it redefine their notion of what is possible not only for people with disability but for themselves if they follow the advice given by the title of the show.

Such has been the response to the initial development and first reading of the project that we are forging ahead to premiere the live stage production starring Amy Golden as herself and featuring a cast of West End credentialed performers at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival. 

A world class production team has been assembled to realise the artistic vision for the premiere of a unique show set to take the world by storm.It is in the hands of friends and interested parties to make this happen!

Risks and challenges

The only risk is not getting the funds to put on the show, we have the entire team on standby and I can't wait to embark on the biggest project of my life.

The challenge facing us is to achieve the amount of capital needed to bring the show to Edinburgh. With a committed creative team already in place who have between them a huge amount of experience in producing new shows and in the Edinburgh Fringe context we are realistic about the goals and the outcomes and confident in our ability to deliver a great show.
