THE FIRST PLAY-ALONG UKULELE MUSICAL
A KOOKY-UKEY LOVE STORY WITH UNIQUE AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION
Now available for you to produce
Uked! is a unique interactive love story that is perfect for ukulele groups and community theatre groups to produce and perform.
Uked! is the hilarious and poignant story of Karla, a lonely and eccentric single woman who is dumped on her 50th birthday by her violin-playing boyfriend Brian in favour of Kylie, who plays the cello.
Desperate to belong and to prove her musical worth, Karla buys a ukulele and begins learning on YouTube, discovering that love and the ukulele have a lot in common.
Uked! explores the issues of ageing, loneliness, identity and belonging though an interactive play with music in a unique and fun way.
It celebrates the power of the humble ukelele to promote musical ability at any age and bring people together to combat social isolation.
Invite us to perform the show for you
Do you have a dedicated ukulele community who would love to see our show AND be in it?
Do you have a local hall with a stage and a projector that seats 80- 200 people? Is there a place nearby where people can buy refreshments or is can they be sold in the hall?
Can you guarantee us audiences for at least three shows (Friday, Saturday and Sunday matinee), paying $30 a ticket (25 for Seniors and other card holders.)
Ideally, we could do a tour of small halls in the same region, which would make the travel aspect more practical.
It works best for us if tickets can be sold in advance. We can help with publicity.
As a professional producer, I need to pay my cast and crew – two actors playing Karla Wade/Maestro, three band members, a stage manager and lighting and sound crew and the cost of travel, meals and accommodation.
But if we can cover our costs we can come and give you an unforgettable feel-good show that will make you forget the woes of the world.
