Deadmouse : the Musical – Toronto Fringe 2015 Press Release

“[A] comedy about a mouse who aspires to be a house DJ but is discriminated against for being a mouse!”


Excerpt from press release:

Deadmouse: The Musical is a comedy about a mouse who aspires to be a house DJ but is discriminated against for being a mouse. Joel Zimmermouse must team up with his best friend, David Goudda, and his flame, Cat, to overcome speciest discrimination and the mouse hating House DJ Avicheese. It does not feature the music of Deadmau5 but instead features more traditional Musical Theatre songs.

Deadmouse will be directed by the Dora Nominated Dale Miller. It features Chris Baker, who has appeared in a number of television shows including Supernatural, Daniel Abrahamson, writer of the hit show “Funny Business”, Stratford and Mirvish Veteran Jewelle Blackman, and Sarah Horsman from the Canadian Premier Cast of Freckleface Strawberry. Rafe Malach, the primary writer of the show, co-wrote the music for “A Simple Twist of Faith” which received a NNNN review in Now Magazine and was picked as one of Now Magazine’s Outstanding Fringe productions last year.
