Monky Business II: Back in the Sandals Again!
Monky Business II: Back in the Sandals Again!
"Sequels rarely improve upon the original production. Monky Business II: Back in the Sandals Again! is an exception to this commonly held belief. If you liked Monky Business I, you're going to love Monky Business II. It's well worth the trip to see these wacky monks strut in their sandals once more." —Battle Creek Enquirer

"First and fun would be two ways to describe the world premiere of Monky Business II. The operative words are 'musical comedy' and the show excels in that department." —Michigan County Press
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.
