THE ART OF THE LIE  is a short musical by a group of dedicated film students from all over the world.

Twenty years after her final show, Allison Parker, a former magician’s assistant, must face the man who wronged her in order to overcome her own cynicism and fall in love with magic again.  

We aim to portray the emotional journey of a character whose cynicism has held her back for the majority of her life. It’s about rediscovering the passion that she thought she had lost long ago through the combination of magic, singing and dancing.

We are incredibly excited to bring Allison's story to life, but we need your help and support. Every Pound, Euro, New Taiwan Dollar, Yuan and Forint will help us make the magic happen.   

Who are WE?

We are a group of international students who are all very passionate about musicals. We cannot wait to bring this magical story to your screen!
