Synopsis

There's something uniquely new about this old-fashioned melodrama musical. This sort of show has always been a delicious staple of the popular theatre but always with period songs just dropped in as musical intervals in the text. What's so exciting about this new approach is that, without sacrificing the marvelous and familiar elements—the virtuous heroine, the unspeakable villain, the handsome hero, the comic secondary characters, all playing out an utterly improbable plot with intense emotions and perfectly straight faces—it's all done in terms of a genuine musical comedy approach. Songs and dances are integrated into the story line and are inseparable from it. The author's aim was nothing short of blending the best of two worlds—19th-century melodrama and 20th-century musical theatre—into a delightful single show. We think your cast and your audience will love it!

Customer Reviews

"An excellent play for mature amateurs. A real crowd pleaser. All of the characters afford an opportunity for actors to "ham it up." Many of our cast blossomed in this play; consequently, they can't wait for the next production."
