MPTheatricals is a dynamic transmedia production company, creating musical experiences on stage and screen. Recently founded by Royal Central School of Speech and Drama graduate Matt Powell, the company aims to create unforgettable music driven entertainment across multiple media platforms.
In July 2020, Matt teamed up with writer Sarah Middleton & grammy award nominated composer to develop Wilf Goes Wild: a contemporary, musical animation following the global adventures of Willow, (aged 9), Wilf (aged 7), & their Giant African Land Snail, Marvin (aged 2). Through imagined expeditions, they learn about different parts of our world, meeting a colourful cast of characters along the way. Their mission? To save the world from Enemies Of The Eco, especially a sinister narwhal, Mr Plumpy, who is up to no good.
A pilot episode was developed with support from Arts Council England to audience & critical acclaim, receiving an OnComm commendation. The trio are currently developing a full series, and are keen to connect with producers, buyers and creatives to support the growth.
In addition to this animation, MPTheatricals has created audio & digital musicals in award nominated formats & are passionate about LGBTQ+ visibility & storytelling.
