Through 2015 many of the musical theatre songs in “Guardian Angels The Musical” were honed musically by taking them to local “Open Mics”.
On Tuesday Fern Teather went to the Open Mic run by John White at The Dog & Partridge in Great Leighs, Braintree and we recorded the song “Playing Live” from the musical.
Fern is playing and singing live, but through her monitor she and us are also hearing the CD recording.
In the musical Izzy Roy and Corinne Willson having been “cut” from auditions for “The End Of The Pier Show” Harwich, and stranded in Harwich for the night, go to the pub.
There they see the opportunity of being able to write their own musical, if only they can get Needham Market singer/songwriter Fern Teather to help them.
Izzy and Corinne both have busy day jobs so we couldn’t record the video “point of view” that would include them, and so that will have to be added at another time.
In the musical premiering at The New Wolsey Studio from June 16th to 19th the atmosphere of a pub setting will be recreated using back projection.
The whole show features a live band and actor/musicians.
This song, and the idea for the song, were Fern’s.
