This futuristic new musical is set on a small rocky planet called BEEZ-DRON
When series of coronal mass ejections (solar storms) devastate their planet, the population has no choice but to evacuate to another solar system leaving their worker 'droids behind as caretakers with a new programme to remove all of the dead fauna and replant when the contamination fades. Unfortunately the droids first attempts ended in failure, however they had been programmed for such an eventuality and an alternative code added to their memory banks which allowed them to recycle whatever material eventually became available, thus allowing them to create a new floral landscape. This oversight meant that once the programme was completed, the droids instantly repeated the programme and as there was no organic material left, these clever little droids were concientiously manufacturing and planting out the whole planet with polymer copies based on of all the photographs stored in their memory banks.

Nowadays, anyone approaching this reinvigorarated little world would have been amazed by the transformation but millenia have passed and now the time had come to allow the natural order of life take over. Unfortunately, the 'droid population have yet to be persuaded that 'natural is the 'norm'. Although many attempts have been made to instigate a re-boot of the original programme, droids being droids, will not be dissuaded from their resolve, so when the Beezedrone Nation request a 'goodwill visit' to show their work to the galaxy, the Galactic Commission of Harmony and Concilliation take the opportunity to send their last hope, a newly appointed 'Planet Earth Ambassador' to bring about a satisfactory conclusion. This novel family musical is new, original and very easy to stage.
I WROTE THIS SPECIFICALLY FOR JUNIORS AGED FROM 12-16.
However it would require the lead role of 'Melody Mayflower' to be played by an accomplished soprano actor.
A guaranteed hit show involving the whole schools'/colleges' art department to make the origami flowers and fauna.
Running time 120 mins approx
PLANET ORIGAMI was composed for performance by a young age group 12-16 with the starring role of Melody Mayflower played & sung by an experienced actor, possibly making a 'Guest Appearance'
Alternatively; this musical could be staged by your local College of Performing Arts, with additional help from local schools who could also be involved in the 'Origami Work & Costume Design'
This is an ideal project to involve all parts of the community and also generate local publicity for ticket sales.
THE TOTAL COST includes the LIBRETTO + PIANO & VOCAL SCORE.
