Seize the Day

A Public Service Opera

Shiny Bum Singers



The Shiny Bum Singers’ mock opera, Seize the Day, reports in song a single, horrendous 24 hour day in the life of a group of public servants in the fictitious Department of Everything Else.  The crises range from the routine (inter alia, a Minister sacked; a dodgy promotion; an evacuation drill; an IT crash; a visit by the auditors), to the unthinkable (a Prime Ministerial decree prohibiting office romances and a forced Departmental relocation – to Crookwell).

Format: A5, 48pp, illus. ISBN 978 1 876668 34 1. Price: $5.00 (Australian dollars)

The Shiny Bum Singers' big book, The OmniBum and the CD An Audience with the Shiny Bum Singers are also available.
