The Last Prom is a band/theatre show hybrid I’ve been developing for the last two years. We’ll be presenting the finished version of our show on the 10th of November, meaning the next 8 weeks of my life are about to get totally consumed by it.
The Antichrist, played by me as a colossal pop music nerd, decides to re-imagine the ritual of the Apocalypse as a Hollywood-style High School Prom, and refashions himself and The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse as the greatest pop band history has ever known.
In an effort to keep Armageddon on course, Death (played by Triple J Unearthed darling Julia Johnson) disguises herself as a mortal and sets out to break my heart. The show ends with the complete destruction of time and all existence.
I’ve got a script, a director, a production team, a shit-hot band and 10 all-new original songs that we’re frantically trying to learn. This is a bigger scale than anything I’ve attempted before and I’m quietly terrified, but thrilled to have pulled together such a great team.
