THE GREATEST GENERATION—A MUSICAL TRIBUTE
Here are a few excerpts from our first show, which opened in 2006 and continues to be performed to this day. It is a stirring tribute to the generation that prevailed through the Great Depression and World War II.
WHEN AMERICA CAME OF AGE
The show opens on New Year's Eve—1900. This rousing opening number sets the upbeat tone for the entire show! As of Spring 2019, this show is now available to community theaters. Licensing for six shows, presentation DVD, practice CD, script, lead sheets and promotional materials are available for an introductory price of $250.
WAITING STAR, A NEW MUSICAL COMEDY
Old Hollywood lives again in one of the zaniest shows to come along in years! Here’s your chance to laugh, fall in love, and share a time-travel adventure you’ll never forget. It begins when a famous soothsayer (famous as the world’s worst) hopes to redeem his reputation by bringing back two 20th century Americans to ancient Egypt.
After he casts the forbidden spell, two buddies are carried back in time, and it becomes complicated when Cleopatra falls in love with one of them. Instead of “Antony and Cleopatra,” will it instead be “Bob and Cleopatra”?
The show is sprinkled with hints of Mae West, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour, Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, and Jimmy Durante.
The music is upbeat and fun—the opening number is “What Do You Give a Girl Who’s Had Everybody.” And there is some tender and romantic music as well.
Two early versions of the show were brought before delighted San Francisco Bay Area audiences and The Road to Egypt is now ready for its Road to Broadway!
