SYNOPSIS

The contemporary theme hides a strong message. Michael is displeased with his parents; he uses the Internet to download new versions, which one by one he rejects. What will be the outcome? Enjoy Michael’s adventures in a pirate world, in Ancient Egypt and on the prairies of America in the time of cowboys and Indians!

TIME

Present day. Some of the language may be adopted to be more contemporary.

PLACE

The musical can be performed with an elaborate or simple set. The following need to be indicated:

  • Street
  • Teenage boy’s bedroom
  • Computer screen
  • Island where pirates have landed
  • Site where pyramid is being built
  • North American prairie (‘Wild West’ style)
  • Interior of garage (1950s)

USE OF TEACHING AND BACKING TRACKS

We recommend that during the rehearsal period the performers become less and less dependent on the teaching tracks, so that they are ready to perform the show with the backing tracks only.

The teaching tracks have all the individual vocal musical numbers provided, but do not include incidental music or reprises. As such, the teaching tracks cannot be used for a performance.

The backing tracks have all the musical numbers, plus incidental music, separately provided in order, allowing the tracks to be run through sequentially, with appropriate pauses for dialogue.
