New mystical musical
JASON and his band of Argonauts arrive at Junction in Goole in style next week for Castaway-Goole Music Theatre’s next big show: ‘Fleeced!, a funny new musical written and directed by Phill Sharp.
Based on the story of Jason and the Argonauts’ quest for the mystical Golden Fleece, audiences can expect to meet sea monsters, skeletons, fire-breathing bulls, dragons and a few surprises along the way - plenty of fun for all the family.
Rehearsals have been an adventure in themselves, with the 40 strong cast taking to the catchy music of this brand new musical with great enthusiasm and style.
Jason (played by Alex Brown) and his Argonauts took a day to improve their sailing skills on location at Scaling Dam Sailing Club near Whitby in July, generously supported by members of the club and local Rotary, and sponsored by volunteers Su and Ian Oakes (volunteers).
Shortly afterwards they appeared on Goole Beach Day music stage with a couple of nautical songs that were well received by the crowd.
Rehearsals have included training to build a boat, designed by artist Bryan Tweddle with Castaway Creative, in less time than it takes to sing four choruses.
Meanwhile, members of Castaway Dance are getting to grips with the larger-scale and supernatural characters, created in their own inimitable style and choreographed with Anna Webb.
And as in all Castaway musicals, the band is live, led by musician Tom Hill.
The production promises to be spectacular. Phill Sharp has taken on the gargantuan task of designing as well as directing the show and working with every aspect – actors, music, lyrics, staging and costume – with great skill and a sure sense of musical theatre.
Fleeced! is at Junction, Goole, between November 21-24 with the matinee performance on Friday beginning at 1pm and other performances at 7pm.
Tickets are £8/£6 with discounts for families and groups. Box Office 01405 763652 or online.
