(Book, Music & Lyrics by Melanie Bean)
A new musical.
What would you give to a neighbor's yard sale? And what would it say about you? The Turners find themselves surrounded by other people's belongings – and mysteries. Luckily, the police are not involved for long, understanding is reached in four households and the yard sale proceeds, though not entirely as planned!
(Book and lyrics by Betsy Hulick)
A modern treatment of the Old Testament in two acts.
Selections from other shows and revues.
