The next show from Trashtastic Productions is “Sci-Fi Love Story” – a musical for those who believe in love and space/time travel. It’s part of the Sydney Fringe Festival 2015.
She dreamt of loving a Spaceman…he dreamt of being one.
Talk about a long-distance relationship! Our hero and heroine are separated by hundreds of thousands of miles, as he is literally “Lost in Space”, and she’s stuck on earth trying to figure out how to save him. Share their story through renditions and unexpected mash-ups of your favourite space songs, from Starman to Starlight, from Calling Occupants to Out of Space. It will be literally out of this world!

Sci-fi Love Story will be coming to a cinema…er…theatre near you in September, as part of the Sydney Fringe Festival 2015.
Those who attended the last show in 2013, “In Between Days” will remember a rollicking good comedy with renditions of their favourite alternative/goth songs…well, this one is for all the sci-fi lovers, the trekkies, the Whovians, the Star Wars peeps, as well as lovers of all the fab space songs from the 70’s to now.
Who could forget “Calling Occupants” by the Carpenters, “Space Oddity” & “Starman” (David Bowie), “Starlight” & “Super Massive Black Hole” (Muse), Radiohead’s “Subterranean Homesick Alien”, “Girl from Mars” (Ash), “Spaceman” (The Killers), “Intergalactic” (Beastie Boys), or the awfully-unforgettable “Star Trekkin” by The Firm? We will honour some of those and more in some unexpected mash-ups.
But at its heart is a love story. A couple torn apart by the husband’s call to duty, to fulfil a purpose higher than his own happiness…but at what cost? A wife who begins to question her previously passive nature, as she becomes an action woman, doing what she can to turn things around. And there are a few quirky characters in there, who are all part of the adventure!
“In Between Days” had only 2 performances, which sold out and we had to turn people away. This time we have 3 dates, in a venue with 120 seats, so it’s a bit bigger, but you’ll still want to book early to ensure you don’t miss out!
