It is the year 2042.
The film industry as we know it is dead; out of money and out of ideas.
A has-been producer and an ambitious young screenwriter believe they've hit the jackpot when a mysterious femme fatale offers them the rights to a little-known 60's television show...a property they can use to revive mega-budget movie franchises!
But turning the adventures of Selma the dutiful housewife into an action-packed blockbuster turns out to be an exercise fraught with danger, intrigue and various perils, with potentially apocalyptic consequences.
"There wasnt even a second in the play which wasnt filled with humour and brilliance... I must confess that I secretly wished for it to start all over again while I was applauding."
Zeynep Incir - Melborne Arts Fashion
"A deliciously wicked romp with great songs and plenty of surprises"
Richard Hyde - Perth Theatre Reviews
"Four multi-tasking, multi-talented actors play fifty-four characters and a dozen musical instruments, sing one clever, witty song after another, and (good grief!) tell a comedic, satirical story about the film industry! "
Michael Brindley - Stage Whispers
This three time award winning original musical comes to Brighton Fringe Festival this May!
POINT & SHOOT is a frenetic, funny musical satire that sees four actors take on a plethora of roles, while simultaneously singing, dancing and accompanying themselves on a variety of musical instruments. For 75 madcap minutes the audience is plunged into a world of lightning-quick costume changes, increasingly ridiculous plot twists, showstopping musical numbers and the occasional explosion. It's musical theatre as you've never seen it before!
POINT & SHOOT premiered in February 2014 at Perth's Fringe World Festival. The production, directed by Tyler Jones and Gemma Hall, and starring Jones, Robert Woods, Erin Hutchinson and Tamara Woolrych, enjoyed a successful season that was ultimately extended due to popular demand. At the Fringe World Awards, POINT & SHOOT won the Artrage Theatre Award for Best Theatre Production and the coveted Martin Sims Award for Best New West Australian Work.
POINT & SHOOT was invited to perform a season for the 2014 Brisbane Festival at La Boite Studio as part of their Award Winning Independent Theatre Showcase, and subsequently toured to the Sydney Fringe 2014, taking the Musical Theatre & Cabaret Excellence Award. They finished their tour of the eastern states of Australia with a successful season for Melbourne Fringe at Revolt Melbourne Artspace. The show has been remounted twice in Perth, at Fringe World 2015 (first runner up Music & Musicals Award), and for an additional limited season prior to touring to Brighton.
