pint.jpgHere's the highlights of our pub meeting last night, as documented by Twitter throughout the evening.  It kind of still makes sense?

4pm - Meeting going well. Just me (TOTDS) and Rob the boss so far. Waiting for Scott! Rough plot coming together. One pint down. http://twitpic.com/5mg5s

4.33pm - Still waiting for Scott! A bit stuck on the plot. Food nice though.  http://twitpic.com/5mjtb

4.48pm -
Thanks for all the title suggestions. "Waiting For Scott" is the current favourite. Still waiting. http://twitpic.com/5ml17

5.52pm -
Still waiting. He's on his way though. We're not sure of the ending yet. Should he really die? We've already bought the Angel costume.

7.01pm -
He's here!

7.09pm -
Proof he's here. Trying to persuade him to fly Wing over. Expensive but worth it I think! http://twitpic.com/5mwg1

12.23pm next day -
Now to start the long process of trying to read yesterday's handwriting. These notes are illegible.

5.59pm -
Any idea what this means? It looks important. If only I could remember what it is. No beer at next meeting! http://twitpic.com/5p9db

It's a blimmin' play about me! On stage with show tunes! smtm.jpg

It's on for 3 nights in August at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

We haven't got a clue how to put on a musical so we're asking for your help.

This is going to be a big team effort to get this onstage. We need your help with the story, the characters, the songs, the posters, the merchandise, the snacks and refreshments... everything!

Please email me with any ideas you have. scott.mills@bbc.co.uk

"We're all in this together" as they said in another musical!

 

How did it come about?

RickRollin.jpgWhen I was on holiday this poster showed up on the internet.

Supposedly I was going to be starring in Rick Rollin' - The Musical, pretending to be loads of old singers! 

Sadly, this was a hoax but one of our listeners, Rich, decided that Scott Mills The Musical would be an even better idea.

Scarily lots of people agreed and the whole thing has snowballed from there.

Now we're actually putting on our own musical!

When and where is it on?

On 11th, 12th and 13th August, Scott Mills The Musical will be performed at the Pleasance One theatre at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.  Performances start at 10.30pm.

The theatre holds about 300 people so tickets will be very limited.

Tickets will be free and available on a first-come-first-served basis from this website, from Mon 27 July at 4.30pm.

There will also be an allocation of tickets available on the day of each show from the Scott Mills The Musical ticket booth in the Pleasance Courtyard - opening times are 12 noon - 10pm.
 
Pleasance One
Pleasance Courtyard
60 Pleasance
Edinburgh

But don't worry if you don't get tickets - the entire show will be online for you to watch.  There will also be photos and loads of behind-the-scenes videos, plus we'll be doing the regular Scott Mills show from Edinburgh every day that week.

 

 

How can I see it if I don't get a ticket?

We'll be filming the musical so you'll be able to watch it for free at R1 online.

You'll also hear highlights on my show.

 

What can I do to help?

Minch.jpgThanks to everyone who's been offering to help.

At the moment we need everyone's ideas.

Please email me at scott.mills@bbc.co.uk with your plots, character ideas, lyrics, full songs...anything and everything really.

We started off with the brilliant Tim Minchin (right) putting some of your lyrics to music and now we have loads of great songs from you.

You'll be able to see and hear people's ideas here on our blog and on my radio show.

Due to the amount of emails we get we may not be able to get back to you straight away though.

Thanks so much for everything you're doing for the musical. We really appreciate it.

 

Can I be in it?

boys_of_radio_1.jpgWe haven't cast the musical yet and are currently working out the best ways to do this.

We'll announce cast details as soon as we have them.

Will Scott be playing himself?

Hoff.jpgHahahahahahaha! Did you see me "acting" in the Bill?! No, I won't be playing myself in the musical but will be introducing it each night.

I just need to find some young, great-looking, talented singer-dancer-actor to be me. No, not the Hoff!

And rudely, Beccy and Chappers are trying to keep me away from the "creative process"and decision making. The first time I actually see the musical will probably be on opening night!.

How do I keep in touch with how it's going?
