BLACKOUT - Operation Pied Piper

A Musical

by

Mark Wheeller

"I still feel that my first dealing with you when we produced Blackout Operation Pied Piper some years ago, was one of the most moving school productions, that I have ever been involved with." Tim Wood, Marlborough House School, Cranbook, Kent.


An evocative musical, with a large cast, set in Britain 1939-43. It explores the life of an evacuee, torn from family and home and living with strangers; the death of her mother in a London bombing raid seems as remote as does her father when he comes to visit. In the end it is the parting from her guardians which is too difficult for any of them to handle.

FAST FORWARD TO FANTASY

The 'Reel' Movie Musical

Book and Lyrics by DIANE BROOKS
Music Composed and Arranged by NEIL STEVENS


A young boy called Joe, who is obsessed with films, is given a special TV remote control by his friends, which unbeknownst to them, magically transports him into the films he is watching, unable to return to real life. Trapped in a world of fantasy, he journeys through several genres in an adventure fraught with danger, encountering along the way Cowboys, Pirates, Wizards and Aliens to name a few. His three friends realise what has happened and go in after him to try and bring him back, but are always one step behind, thus resulting in some rather awkward and farcical situations, as they get caught up in the action of the various films.

SAME MUSICAL NEW TITLE



BLACKOUT OPERATION PIED PIPER

by Mark Wheeller

Mark Wheeller's wartime musical focusing on the plight of the evacuees in this famous "operation" is being re-launched under this new title (from one of the catchy songs) as part of the 70 years anniversary of the start of World War II.   Previously known simply as BLACKOUT it was Mark's most performed musical in 2008. 

" The evocation of the period was so good that I spent the first act waiting for Vera Lynne's entrance."  Hugh David: Times Educational Supplement.
