Script by Jan Morrison and Malcolm Callaway - Music and Lyrics by Jim Henman and Dawn Harwood-Jones
First produced in the tiny village of Chester, Nova Scotia in 1998 - a co-production of the Chester Drama Society, Studio 3, and the Chester Playhouse. Death the Musical was performed by a combination of dedicated amateurs (lovers of theatre) and professionals. A year later, it opened on Neptune Theatre's main stage in Halifax, Nova Scotia - the first Nova Scotian musical to have its all-professional début in Fountain Hall.
This is the story of Will, deceased and ensconsed at The Afterlife Bar and Grill. Realizing Will doesn't know he's dead, the bar tender Beulah drops some hints but is stopped by Inspector Dr. Zoose - a rule-bound bureaucrat who speaks in rhyme. At Will's drunken wake, Georgia, Liam and Em (his girlfriend) get maudlin. Em collapses and gets a tourist visa to the Afterlife Bar.
Great songs, advice from John the Baptist, and other "spirited" characters make this a must-see adventure.
