FILMSTARS Colin Firth and Hugo Weaving have used Ipswich locations as a backdrop in recent months - now it's time for young home-grown actors to create movie magic in the city.
Fractal Youth Theatre production Whatever Happened to Humpty? will be shot locally during school holidays and entered in youth film festivals.
Theatre director Brenna Lee-Cooney wrote the script as a "film noir nursery crime".
"It is a 1950s detective story - Jack and Jill are the detectives, and nursery characters take on a whole new dimension as Baa Baa the pawnbroker, Georgie Porgy the nightclub owner and jazz musician Old King Cole," Ms Lee-Cooney said.
"All are implicated in the demise of Humpty Dumpty.
"Filming will be an exercise for the students, firstly in how to adapt a script for film and then in the process of acting for film. They're part of the creative process from the beginning.
"I'm desperately looking for a location that serves as a 1950s police office."
Ms Lee-Cooney said the award-winning cast were "dead keen" to film the fun play.
