Product description

About the Author

The first BoomeRangers book, 'Dead Centre', was originally written in rhyme, and this version is closely modeled on that concept. Since publishing 'Dead Centre' in prose there have been two more books in the series, 'The Taranaki Oracle', and 'Maralinga Countdown', and somehow I have always visualized them as performance pieces, ideally with music, song, dance, and as much colour and movement as could reasonably fit on a stage, and within a limited school budget! Having no personal musical talents whatsoever, I will leave it up to you to find a way to turn this into 'Mad Max meets Priscilla meets Skippy on Broadway' or whatever. Original music would be fantastic, but there are a lot of very 'hummable' songs now in the public domain, so that could be a starting point. I'm sure with the right 'rap' delivery, most of this could sound good with even the barest minimum of original music or accompaniment, but if you have a school band or choir that's up for it, even better! Friends and family in the teaching profession have often bemoaned the difficulty of staging a school play or musical that could provide a role for all their students, from the little preppies through to the high-school graduates. Well, hopefully here it is! Time, space and money may no doubt require certain scenes to be cut or even abandoned completely-I'm not going to get all precious about that-just do it such a way that what remains still makes some sense! For schools and bona fide educational institutions no performance fee will be charged, but please contact me so I can acknowledge giving permission. andrew@boomerangers.com www.boomerangers.com
