What do we all have in common? Maths. And underpants.
That was the beginning of silly idea I had for a play. A fun one. That kids would love to sit and watch - in which we would sneakily teach them about thinking and maths. Cue the evil laugh!!
I have had the pleasure to have several works performed around the world. My latest work DETECTIVE SMART & THE MATHEMATICAL UNDERPANTS toured Queensland, Australia produced by Queensland Music Festival and Old Fashioned Production Co.
It was a pleasure to work with performers Mary Eggleston and Matthew Filkins, and Laura Bonner and lizzie Moore from Queensland Music Festival Youth Touring in creating the show - from idea to the rehearsal room to sending it out into the world - working on a new project with passionate, intelligent people is something I will, probably, never tire off!
As I embark on my next project; Original Concept Recording of a new musical ANY MOMENT, I am so thrilled with the reception the show is getting from students and school around Australia. And it all started with a silly idea of someone stealing underpants. I can’t say more than that - cause it will ruin the twist! You’ll just have to see the show...
Till next time,
Detective Smart has had a perfect career – 114 cases solved – working all around the world – but this case has him stumped. A mystery will soon close down the local school and the principal begs him to help! How?…link these clues detectives!
Students are getting top grades on the hardest surprise test ever, countless mysteriously missing clothes (some of which, so stinky, they need not be found) and worst of all, a secret club that is controlling all things from the underground basement…but how? Why? Can Detective Smart link these facts and beat the odds?!
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to join us on this top secret case. The show relies on student’s hunches and problem-solving skills to find clues and discover breakthroughs to help Detective Smart solve the mystery. Using mathematical concepts, this delightful show promotes teamwork, creative thinking and an appreciation of using your mind and instincts.
