A hilarious comedy cabaret short to kick-start your Saturday evening.

The Dots are a slick and sophisticated cabaret trio. Well, they were ‘til the soprano stormed out. And the mezzo died in a freak pigeon accident. Remaining Dot, Helen, (up Dot creek without a dotting paddle) frantically finds emergency understudies during a global pandemic. Watch as this new ensemble launch into an under-rehearsed whirlwind of quavering fear, major malfunctions and minor injuries as Helen desperately tries to uphold the bar of her beloved trio without a minims rest.

Industry professionals will be logging on and tuning in. This performance could launch The Dots into stardom. Covid-19 won’t stop Helen. The show must go on! Will they strike the right chord? Will they B flat? Can Helen stave the day? Join The Dots for music, socially distanced mayhem, facemasks and a cataclysmic crescendo! For-tis-si-mo-ment of truth!
