Club Loco, Stage 4
Christopher Deering and James Morgan FlipScore ‘It ain’t
over till the end’.
An outrageously funny but poignant musical from the pen of Christopher Deering. Basically, how not to set up and run a Night Club. Pre Phoenix Nights, this timeless musical has a cast of plenty, with many bit parts, updatable jokes and some great songs.(Score only at the mo.)
Caucasian Chalk Circle. Stage 5 Incidental Music by James Morgan FlipScore
Once Upon A Time, Four Generals, Nobody Wants You, Rotten Bridge, Civil War, Dance. Some of the solo songs from CCC for small chamber ensemble, Soloists and Chorus. The music also serves well as incidental music for the play. Not difficult and in an Eastern European style.

Stage 8 FlipScore
2 musicals from the Dabhand Theatre stable. Written by Dave Hallworth and Brent Batten with music by James Morgan, these shows are for a small company. No real chorus work and only a few soloists. Eagle Dan takes us on a fantasy journey through space, whilst Demands and Expectations tugs at our emotions. Vocal scores – no orchestration.
Macbeth FlipScore Preview Macbeth's Lament - following Macbeth's death, his body is carried from the stage and the cast reform to take their bows. A series of recorded dances (Witches Toccata, Lady Macbeth's Domppe, Macduff and Malcolm's March, My Lord Duncan's Jig and the beautiful Macbeth's Lament - who said no-one could beat the Scottish Tourist Board advert) for Holmfirth High School's acclaimed post-apocalyptic production. The music is pre-recorded, though each piece includes parts that could be played by a seriously good violinist and electric guitarist. There are also a series of images for back projection, though hire of these will need to be negotiated with the copyright holder.
Knots, Stage 10. A short
Ballet/Music Theatre by James Morgan FlipScore
A setting of words from RD Laing's 'Knots'. For piano duet, speaker and chorus this piece gives opportunities for many interesting diversions. There is an orchestration for chamber ensemble if I can find it!
