Skitzoid Productions’ new musical coming to Waterloo East Theatre
For this week’s Runn Radio interview, we went big. And by big, we mean we had five guests all at the same time. Those five consisted of Jonny Brace, Katie Penfold, Zara Evans and Daniel Nyari, the four cast members of upcoming musical, The Last Sales Conference of the Apocalypse, along with the show’s choreographer, Julia Zlotnick. Remarkably, we didn’t spend half the interview talking over each other.
The musical is the latest from Skitzoid Productions, in which Sam has just accidently initiated a nuclear missile countdown. How we just don’t know as Sam apparently works for a new start-up company. But we’re sure all will be explained in the show. And if that opening sounds bizarre, we have a feeling that is only the start of the madness, as from there, Sam passes out and we enter his subconscious, where he sees everything as a TV franchise and he is the showrunner. It’s certainly a show we are eager to see!
But for now, we get to talk to its four strong cast and choreographer, to find out more about their characters and how they got involved with the show in the first place.
The show plays at Waterloo East Theatre from 4 to 30 October, bookings here.
Last Sales Conference of the Apocalypse
Waterloo East Theatre, 4 to 30 October
Sam, the head of IT startup “supportme” has just initiated a nuclear missile countdown with his bottom. This is scary, but also embarassing.
Sam devises a plan to stop the launch. The plan does not go well, and unhelpfully, Sam passes out. He enters his subconscious, imagining himself as a showrunner who directs his staff to play roles in tv franchises.
Forgotten memories from Sam’s childhood start to emerge. Sam’s head becomes a battleground between himself and the rest of his team. Can Sam connect back to his lost memories and stop the impending apocalypse?
Featuring fifteen original songs and the voice of God, Marcus Bentley (from Big Brother), “Last Sales Conference of The Apocalypse” explores the long-term impact of domestic violence and conversion therapy through comedy, music, drama & suspense.
Tuesday to Saturday, 7.30, Sunday’s 4pm. Tickets £20 (£17 concession)
