AN OUT-of-this world British musical cast has gotten creative to bring the gift of theatre to you during the Covid–19 outbreak.

Following their hugely popular run at the Other Palace in 2018, Eugenius! will release the full archive footage of the show online on Friday, March 20 March at 7pm in order to raise money for Acting for Others, and provide some much-needed relief to those self-isolating.

Eugenius! by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins tells the story of Eugene, a teenage boy whose nightly dreams of a distant world of heroes and villains could be the ticket to him creating his very own comic book movie in Hollywood.

Joined on his amazing adventures by best friends Janey and Feris, our comic writing genius finds the superhero within, saves the world from earthbound villains – and those from distant galaxies – and along the way, falls in love!

In a joint statement, Adams and Wilkins said:“As shows close across the globe and people are forced to stay at home, there’s never been a more important time to bring the joy of live theatre right to your doorstep!

"Unlike some other shows that have recordings intended for release this was never intended to be seen but as the cast are incredible, the music rocks and it still delivers the same heart felt story and feel good factor that audiences took away with them when they saw the show live, we thought you should see it anyway!

"Team Eugenius thanks you in advance for all your support."

So do yourself a favour, find the largest screen you have, turn up the volume and forget about life for a while…
