A musical parody of TV's Lost
The countdown is well and truly on as Whimsical Productions prepares for take-off on its Sydney production of "Found! A Musical Parody of Lost" with original script and music by Madeleine Halls. Found! will premiere at the Hellenic Art Theatre in Marrickville, Sydney between 22-24 February 2018.

Found! features a variety of local emerging artists, led by writer & director Madeleine Halls, with musical direction by David Lang and choreography by Marika Zorlu.
The talented cast of individuals bringing this hilarious show to life on stage are Ethan Taylor, Katherine Nheu, David Wotherspoon, Emily Engeman, Christopher Daw, Helen Muller, Edwin Tay, Michael Osborne, Spencer Thew, Cathlyn-Rose McKellar, Doug Bryant, Andy Fung, Suzanne Chin, Jerome Varlet-Green, Alex J Acosta, Matilda Zorlu and Aleena Nguyen.
Through their creative leadership, the young and hardworking cast of Found! have been busy rehearsing scenes, fine-tuning characters, polishing dance steps and recording music for an upcoming cast album to be released during the February production.
The development process of a new musical, especially with an original script, music and choreography, comes with lots of hard work and dedication. Though not without its artistic challenges, the excitement of creating a brand new theatrical piece allows the entire production team the chance to be innovative, agile and responsive to change, which ultimately produces stronger artists & individuals.
Found runs for three performances only, so tickets are in short supply. Buying a ticket supports new, grassroots Australian musical theatre and ensures an hilarious night out.
