Invitation to brass musicians

An exciting opportunity for local musicians to perform in Victoria Melody’s brand new production.

We are seeking brass musicians from the local community who would like to perform in Ugly Chief’s grand finale alongside the performers on stage in a New Orleans jazz procession!

Victoria Melody is an award winning British performance artists who is performing her latest show Ugly Chief at the New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich as part of PULSE Festival on Sat 3 June 2017.

This presents a unique and exciting opportunity to showcase your talent and perform in a world class touring production starring ITV’s Mike Melody – celebrity antique dealer from Dickinson’s Real Deal.

Using Victoria’s training as a funeral director and a huge amount of research Ugly Chief looks at the British Funeral industry and how we deal with death in modern society. Ugly Chief is a comedy based on true events performed by a real-life father and daughter. It explores the taboos around death and its practicalities, and the fractious relationship with a parent whose opinions you don’t always agree with.
