Sri Lankan Fireteam: The Power of Song

Calling the world’s four finest firefighters, to formulate the ultimate force in fire fighting prowess… the Sri Lankan Fireteam.

An elite team of firefighters assemble in Sri Lanka from across the globe to counter a suspicious string of fires that’s brought the nation to its knees. Our team of go-getting (brown-washed) white saviours must adapt to this alien environment and work together to face an increasingly ominous threat. They’ve stocked up on sunblock and they’re ready to rock. A fire fighting force that nothing can stop. 

Not when they’ve got the power of song on their side!

Sri Lankan Fireteam: The Power of Song is an original absurdist comedy musical that answers the age-old question – can you fight fire with fire?

Starring Fred Jameson, Aurnab As-Saber, Hasini Walpola, Akansha Hungenahally and Daevina Summugam.
