ABOUT THE SHOW
Set over the course of 24 hours, this original two-act revue is inspired by such works as Closer Than Ever, I Love You You're Perfect Now Change and Songs For A New World.
Each song and scene take place in the one town, as the musical drops into different people’s lives through the course of a single day. We begin at midnight, and progress through the 'every day stories' that unfold minute by minute. Hour by hour.
Inspired by the famous John Lennon quote, ‘Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans’ ANY MOMENT explores what a minute in time truly represents. What purpose does a day hold? What unfolds in those little moments that happen without us noticing? It aims to highlight the beauty and fragility life, asking if the ultimate unifying theme for all human beings, is that all of our lives will play out... one moment at a time. Who knows what will and could happen... Any Moment.
THE FUTURE / LEADING TO PRODUCTION
The creation of this recording is also the first step in a longer plan to bring the work to be staged professionally in Queensland before 2021.
The workshops and filming for this project have been made possible by Queensland Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse and Hayward Street studios.
"It is always very satisfying to know that there is talent out there writing new material and pushing the boundaries in musical theatre." Musical Theatre UK (about Bradley McCaw’s Becoming Bill)
"Sometimes, the experience of musical theatre can be so special as to leave you in want of a thesaurus to do its distinction justice..." Blue Curtains (about Bradley McCaw’s Becoming Bill)
Risks and challenges
The project will only be possible if we achieve our target amount through this campaign. Every dollar contributed here goes directly to funding the artists involved in the project.
Recording Studio time is already scheduled and provided to the project by SAE Institute (Brisbane).
The band will record the backing tracks in early September, with vocals being completed in late September/October.
The work has been developed during early 2018 with the assistance of Queensland Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse and Hayward Street Studio.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
