  H.M.S. Pinafore

Musical by R Eugene Jackson David Blackburn

This lighthearted comic opera by Gilbert and Sullivan has enjoyed great audience appeal since it opened in 1878. This version, with its subtle cuts in the libretto and tasteful song selection, features more simplified harmony for the chorus and in some cases easier keys for teen singers. At a trim 90 minutes, it's a perfect length for today's audiences.

  Big Bad Wolf (And How He Got That Way)

Comedy Musical by Greg Palmer John Engerman

Here’s a rousing musical defense of the wolf, presented in English Panto style.

With plot aspects from “The Three Little Pigs,” “Red Riding Hood,” “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” and even “Frankenstein,” the pigs are shown to be the real culprits. They're clever media manipulators with strictly their own swinish interests at heart. The two-member orchestra also becomes a hilarious part of the performance as they interact with ...
