Absolutely Silly Old Buggers

A musical celebration

Where to now?

The show began with workshops in front of two different audiences during its development.

A 60-minute version then went on to great success at the
Melbourne International Comedy Festival
in April, 2009.

That was followed by a season at
Chapel Off Chapel in October, 2009 in Prahran where again, it was a great success and audiences enthusiastically asked:

Where will the show be next?

Four SOB’s and a young pianist

Many efforts were made to get the show into a commercial theatre but, as the Global Financial Crisis hit the world about that time, nothing came of our endeavours.
A recording session produced clips of four of the songs which we put up on YouTube.

The show has been placed in the hands of an agent: David Spicer Productions in Sydney.
This eventually resulted in a successful production in New Zealand in May, 2016 and an encouraging email from the show’s director there says:

I directed 'Silly Old Buggers' which was a howling success and we regretted not putting it on in the larger theatre. We put it on in our dinner theatre room with a capacity of 90 and it was sold out from the second night of six performances, with a waiting list for the final three. I shall be peddling it on your behalf at the MTNZ Conference in March. The cast had so much fun with it and the audience responded accordingly. It has been nominated for a couple of awards at the Zone 1 Napta awards.

Sold OUT!

This seems to be the end of the road for Silly Old Buggers. It’s still available through the agent and one day, who knows, there may be renewed interest in it.
Until then, this website will stay online for historical interest and perhaps to provide a little nostalgia for those who saw it or were part of it.
We all had a lot of fun!
