Synopsis

What's a black girl from sunny Southern California to do? White people are blowing up black girls in Birmingham churches. Black people are shouting "Black is beautiful" while straightening their hair and coveting light skin. Viveca Stanton's answer: Slap on a bubbly smile and be as white as you can be!

Bugsy Malone Comedy/Satire View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

The pint-sized, pinstriped classic is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the gangster films of the 1920's.

Based on the hit 1976 film starring a preteen Scott Baio and Jodi Foster and featuring a catchy, swinging score by the composer of The Muppet Movie, Bugsy Malone is good, clean, comedic fun! Two gangs comprised completely of children, square off in a 1920's rivalry of Capone-ian standards. Dandy Dan's gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the "splurge" gun (a weapon that shoots whip cream). Now Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble! Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight, when he becomes the last chance Fat Sam's gang has of surviving. All Bugsy really wants to do is spend time with his new love Blousey; but that just isn't in the cards for our hero.

Bugsy Malone is a master class in musical comedy. The libretto tosses the reader into uproarious laughter without even being staged. Imagine how delightful it is when it's brought to life! Not to mention, Bugsy Malone is a fantastic choice for school groups and programs with a large talent pool of young performers.

By Hex Comedy/Satire; Drama View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

The story is set in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and deals with the Amish folk. Jonas, a young Amish farmer, rebels against the restrictions of his people; he wants to wear red suspenders and buy a tractor in a word, he wants to "go modern." The Bishop warns him that he will be shunned if he does this; none of his people will be allowed to speak to him or recognize him in any way. Nancy, the Bishop's eldest daughter, is sad; she feels life has passed her by, and in a moment of unhappiness, she allows a non-Amish man to kiss her. The Bishop sees this, and warns Nancy that she too could be shunned. When Jonas buys his tractor, the Bishop shuns him, and Jonas, in a moment of uncontrollable rage, denounces the Bishop for favoritism in failing to denounce Nancy when she, too, failed to keep one of the strict Amish rules. The Bishop, in a scene of great emotional impact, is forced to shun both Jonas and Nancy. Lydia, Nancy's youngest sister, is engaged to Eli, but under Amish law they can't get married until Nancy marries. And since Nancy is shunned, no Amish man may speak to her. So the logical solution is to bring Nancy and Jonas together. Lydia finds an old "hex" book that she thinks will help her do this, and while Eli isn't very hopeful, he's willing to help. When Jonas tries to run his tractor he has an accident and ends up in jail, where Nancy comes to see him. They realize their love for each other, and Jonas realizes he can't change overnight; that at heart he's wholly Amish. Jonas and Nancy are once again accepted, and two weddings are in the offing.

An Off-Broadway hit, and a perennial summer theatre success. An ideal musical for high schools, colleges and community theatres, with a charming and easily presented score.

Catch Colt, The Comedy/Satire View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

Owner of the largest ranch in his part of Wyoming, Jepson Heath is a proud and determined man. He manages his affairs with a firm hand, including the engagement of his beautiful daughter, Letty. The only man Jepson considers to be good enough for her is his college-educated foreman, Hank, but while Letty's hand may be pledged, her heart is not; and when Joey Bud, a handsome young ranch hand, comes along to work on the haying crew, it is love at first sight for both of them. Jealous from the outset, Hank grudgingly signs Joey on but only with the condition that he assemble the new windmill, a task that no one else on the ranch has been able to accomplish. Aided miraculously by Letty's kisses, Joey sets to work, and the windmill literally springs into shape before their astonished eyes. Joey wins the right to stay at the ranch, but Jepson adamantly keeps the lovers apart as Joey is a "catch colt," an orphan of the plains who knows neither his true name nor his lineage. Bit by bit, however, and despite some underhanded work by Hank, the evidence of Joey's true identity is pieced together, and all ends happily in a swirl of music, dance and the happy anticipation of wedding bells.

Described by the author-composer as "a folk tale of the western plains with music," this high-spirited, colorful musical tells that story of Joey Bud, a "catch colt" (orphan) who claims his rightful name, and his rightful bride, despite the underhanded scheming of a jealous rival.
