Fear of Filing
Fear of Filing
Book and lyrics by Jane Ellen Murray. Music by Roger Pauly and Vince Ippolito.

Cast: 8 with doubling, flexible. A musical spoof that pokes fun at the Internal Revenue Service and that taxing business of "taxing." Fear of Filing is a love story between a wealthy, philanthropist playboy, John Livingston, and Doris Pennyworth, the IRS agent who is auditing his return. Doris' boss, the district director, advises her to "Throw the Book at Him." While John pleads for mercy as he and his curvy secretary sing and dance "Give Me a Shelter for a Rainy Day," his lawyers do a Gilbert and Sullivan bit about "Loopholes." Love finally triumphs and the cast celebrates with a rousing finale, "Many Happy Returns." Sixteen show-stopping songs, including three love ballads and the toe-tapping "H&R Block Rock," will have your audiences cheering. Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 2 hours.
