Every filmmaker has a secret dream: They
All want to make musicals!
Dex Dixon, is a hard-boiled, Paranormal Investigator at the beginning of the end of his career, Dex lives in Our Fair City, a gritty, urban jungle just across a dimensional rift from Nightside; a city populated by the movie monsters of old. It has been ten years since Dex was exiled from Nightside; and he never expected a mysterious woman to arrive with a case requiring his special skills that will drop him right back into trouble there. Now Dex finds him-self returning to his old haunts, where he meets an old enemy, an old friend and an old flame.
"The Adventures of Dex Dixon: Paranormal Dick" is a Noir, Horror, Comedy Musical filled with puns, guns, vixens, vamps, monsters, music, and mayhem.
The Musical version started as a fun Cabaret style show with two original songs and a few best generation standards thrown in for flavor and to round out the show. It played well to small audiences and ran for a few weeks in the Summer of 2014. The show was done on the cheap, but its impact was anything but. People asked us to "re-vamp" the show, but we were on to other shows by then. It wasn't until Kirk Mouser of Stumptown Stages approached us to collaborate on a new show that we saw our chance to dust of Dex and expand the show for a larger stage.
Stumptown pulled together a budget and a cast of some new players and some of the original cast and crew and it ran in the Winter of 2016 with an orchestra and a budget. It was well received and is now in the stages of a rewrite with additional songs and greater stakes for our gum shoe. We are ready to start letting outside groups produce this unique and hilarious Noir Musical Comedy.
