To present Guy Fawkes Musical at St James's Theatre in London, in August 2015. As part of our successful Arts Funding application, we need a further £5000 to complete the next stage of our project.
The story is set in London, 1605. Our story takes us through the gunpowder plot and a love triangle involving Guy Fawkes, Robin Catesby & Anne Vaux. With echoes of the religious conflicts that still exist today, we unearth a terrifying conspiracy: Who sent the anonymous letter that foiled the plot?
Michael Taylor Matus (Lyrics and Book) and Nick Butcher (Music) have been developing the show for the past 12 months, and have recently completed a cast demo recording, at Battersea Park Studios, with some of London's top artists including Michael Xavier, Laura Pit-Pulford, Carly Bawden, Damien Humbley and an ensemble of brilliant industry professionals. The cast also had a full read through at RADA studios with our Director Charlie Westenra.
We have Arts Council Funding on Condition that we are able personally to raise £6000.
