There's going to be a musical about Deadmau5

'Deadmouse the Musical' will premiere at the Toronto Fringe Festival

Deadmau5 is heading to the theatre. Kind of.

Toronto Fringe Festival is edging ever closer, kicking off on July 1, and everyone's favourite Purrari-driving Canadian is to be at the centre of a musical. Don't get too excited, though. The man himself won't actually be in the play, he'll be replaced by a guy called Joel Zimmermouse.

The synopsis might read like a huge piss-take ("Deadmouse the Musical is a musical about a mouse who wants to be a house DJ but is discriminated against for being a mouse") but this really is happening.

Apparent best friend David Goudda, "mouse-hating house DJ Avicheese (any guesses who they're based on?) and Cat Von D make up the rest of the characters as he sets on his musical mission.

It's running from July 3 to July 11 at Red Sandcastle Theatre so there's plenty of time to see "Book of Mormon meets Ratatouille".
