Whimsical Productions is proud to present the premiere of Found! A Musical Parody of “Lost”, a hilarious twist on the famous “stranded island trope” stories with an original script and music written by Madeleine Halls.
As well as being a huge fan of the television series “Lost”, Madeleine was inspired by indie parody musicals “Musical of Thrones” (which performed at the Sydney & Adelaide Fringe Festivals) and Starkid Productions “A Very Potter Musical.” Her story challenges gender & racial stereotypes by ‘flipping’ the motivations and plots of the main characters, introduces the ‘mystical’ and ‘supernatural’ elements early (akin to Shakespeare’s The Tempest) and uses humour as a vehicle to drive the story in surprising directions (think Monty Python’s Spamalot combined with The Book of Mormon.)
Apart from the comedy, Madeleine’s musical score contrasts between the frenzied and upbeat chorus tunes to soulful and melancholic ballads. It is through the music that the characters get to display greater and complex emotional depth. This show is not just a happy musical!
