Good Omens

Squabbalogic Presents a Development Reading of
An Apocalyptically Atypical New Musical
Based on the Novel by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

 

According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world’s only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.

 

So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan.

 

Not actually looking forward to the coming rapture are a fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle. They team up to circumvent the end of days but there is only one problem. Someone seems to have misplaced the Anti-Christ.

 

Good Omens The Musical has been in development for some time and is preparing a workshop phase. Before we head into the rehearsal room, we will present this unique opportunity for an audience to participate in an often-mysterious process by presenting a reading of the current draft of the script and songs for this exciting new piece.

 

Good Omens as been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

 

Ticket sales contribute entirely to the expense of mounting this presentation.
