Here's an hour-long, tail-wagging musical about everybody's best friend! Ralph, a lonely kind of guy, and Angel, a special young woman from "up North," care for homeless dogs at the city animal shelter. Each dog has a special story to tell in song. Only Max, with leather jacket, greased back ears, and sunglasses, is too cool of a cat - er - dog to admit he wants a home. But at the shelter, time is limited and only a miracle can save the furry characters. Simple to stage with terrific music.
Flexible cast of 16 or more
The pirates are stealing everything and the town council is helpless until the Sutton children, acting as spies, find out where the goods are being hidden. Ten rousing, original songs plus lots of opportunity for fun as colonial townspeople, pirates, serving maids, sea men, and militiamen, roles unique to this colorful period of American history. Performance time is 60 minutes.
Flexible cast, approx. 10 m, 4 w (or 7 actors with doubling)
A one-set operetta about the 1880s Colorado mining town of Dead Dog Gulch - oops, we mean, Columbine Valley. You see, the ladies of the Beautification Society have purtied the town - the general store is now a pink "emporium," and even the jail - well, crime is down because no man would be caught dead in it! Now the miners are always fighting, that is, until the cowboys arrive and start shooting and making fun of this sissy town. The kids and ladies solve the problem but pretend the miners did it all. Unison songs. About 60 minutes.
