THE CAMERAMAN – a new musical comedy adventure for all ages

From ‘sometime in the future’, a jaded detective looks back on his early career as a young crime-fighter in the ‘Roaring 20s’ – the days of fake news, a world pandemic and global warming.

Set around the seedy French Cafe du Pont, this is a playful homage to the film-noir genre. There’s a voice- over narration and live musical accompaniment, including piano, accordion and some funky steel guitar.

There are songs, excitement and silent comedy as the storyline follows the fortunes of an inept cameraman who inadvertently becomes involved in the theft of the World’s Largest Diamond.

With influences as diverse as Tintin, Roger Rabbit, Humphrey Bogart and Buster Keaton, The Cameraman offers a comic view on the classic cinema detective movies with a touch of nostalgia for our analogue past.

This show will be touring outdoors throughout the summer of 2021 and 2022.
