Musical Comedy. Book by Todd Mueller and Hank Boland. Music and Lyrics by Gregg Opelka.
Cast: 5m. (no doubling, expansion or gender flexibility.) Everyone loves a revenge story. That's right—your favorite devil is back for a second shot at the beloved brothers of St. Bernard's. Abbot Costello and his band of merry monks face off against their old rival, Brother Clarence. This time we are at the monastery where a batch of new initiates (the audience), is just about to get inducted into the joy of monastic life. If Clarence, however, can persuade each of the other four brethren to commit one deadly sin before the stroke of midnight, St. Bernard's along with all the new initiates, will fall into the hands of darkness. If you think Brother Clarence hasn't got a prayer, you're in for a wicked surprise. As Abbot Costello battles Gluttony, Brother Lee Love wards off Lust, Brother Brooks grapples with Greed and Brother Forte fights Pride, things look pretty bleak for the robed rascals. This madcap return to the monastery features such hilarious songs as "Chant Your Troubles Away," "Girls" and "Men in Brown." Your audience will be glad they came back for another covenant. One unit set, monastery. Approximate running time: 2 hours.
