A personal note from the two female writers of the show:
We know each year you face the arduous task of selecting a show for your students to perform and we are well aware of the many factors you take into consideration when making that decision. We hope you will take a look at this show as a breath of fresh air for both your students and your audiences.
As two contemporary, female composers, we have worked to bring you a show that has both a backbone and a funny bone. We wrote a script that will have your cast in stitches and a musical score that will have your audiences asking for repeat performances for years to come!
Both of us have years of experience in schools and we know how much work it is. We have created a library of materials for this show to make your job as easy as possible! From the professionally produced performance CD and promotion posters to the MP3 & PDF files for each character, you can hit the ground running as soon as your scripts arrive.
When you license this show, we guarantee our personal attention as we work with you to make your production a success. Let us know what questions you have and be sure to ask about our educator discount.
Like you, we are people who are passionate about getting good material onto the stage and creating musical memories your students will treasure forever.
