POINTS FOR HAPPY END­ING

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Stage -

FRINGE World 2014’s award-win­ning new mu­si­cal Point and Shoot has fol­lowed its suc­cess in Perth with a whirl­wind fes­ti­val tour of Bris­bane, Syd­ney and Mel­bourne.

Writ­ten and com­posed by lo­cal duo Tyler Ja­cob Jones and Robert Woods, the satire fea­tures four ac­tors in a va­ri­ety of roles while singing, danc­ing and play­ing a range of mu­si­cal in­stru­ments.

Woods, of Floreat, said although some au­di­ences on tour were louder than oth­ers, they all left with beam­ing faces, which was the great­est re­ward.

“I think I’m most sur­prised that we man­aged to pack down all our props, cos­tumes and 16 in­stru­ments and lug them on to air­planes and trains and taxis to four dif­fer­ent states,” he said.

“When you see the show set up on stage, it looks a lit­tle over­whelm­ing but we man­age to squish it all into a few suit­cases, ex­cept for the dou­ble bass. That was tricky.”

Woods said they hoped to re­turn with another Perth sea­son early next year.

Point and Shoot cast Robert Woods, Tyler Ja­cob Jones, Erin Hutchin­son and Ta­mara Wool­rych.
