Doodle - a new comedy musical

By Andy Street  & Jonathan Kydd

 

DOODLE!’ An all-singing all-dancing new comedy musical.

It is the year 1940. Britain is at war with Nazi Germany. Barnes Wallis the eventual inventor of the world famous Bouncing Bomb as featured in the film the Dam Busters (you know the black and white one where the bomb bounces into the dams?) is kidnapped by the Nazis to build them a Bouncing Submarine.

No one believes the threat is serious (‘A Bouncing submarine? Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Absurd!’) and Barnes Wallis has so far only invented a Talking Robot called Trevor who is rubbish, so nobody, especially the King and Winston Churchill, believes Wallis’s kidnapping should be taken seriously.

Consequently a Z team of not very good misfits including a Sherlock Holmes impersonator, is recruited to go on a secret mission to discover whether the threat is real or just a ridiculous joke. Once they're on their way it's discovered that the threat is so serious, it has the potential to lose Britain the war. (CUE HUGE DOOM LADEN CHORD)

21 songs including a really impressive one where the cast sound like a Spitfire plane. David Niven and Charles Bronson are in it. Written by American Idol’s Andy Street and actor Jonathan Kydd. Whose father was actor Sam Kydd. Sam’s in it too.
