The post Covid-19 musical, set in a suburban supermarket the year after the pandemic. A colourful cast of quirky characters fight to keep the independent business afloat against a major chain store. They all do their best to make meaningful connections in a world full of differences, whilst suffering the pressures of their own lives. Price Check! was originally written as a musical comedy that explored the lives of five diverse characters in a suburban supermarket.
A well paid profit hungry store manager, with a bitter divorce and a bad dance routine.
A middle aged widowed checkout chick, slowly working her way through the junior shelf fillers in search of romance.
A new Indian migrant struggling with the strange Aussie vernacular, whilst displaying a unique devotion to his work.
A geeky store assistant flaunting his arts degree whilset hoping for an in store promotion to help fix his failed marriage.
An elderly patron suffering from loneliness and a bout of sharp tongue.
In 2020 the script was updated to include five more minor principal roles and chorus. They include a divorced teacher who was banned from the store, for hoarding toilet paper during the pandemic.
Act One is set in late September.
Act Two commences with Christmas in October.
