A Butter Battle Tale
Adapted and written by Lori Lazarus
Music arrangement by Frank Sanchez
Inspired by original story by Dr. Seuss
Engaged in a long-running battle, rivaling neighbors develop more and more sophisticated weaponry as they attempt to out do each other. In this battle between the two neighbors, (over which way to butter your bread!), the story conveys the astounding destructive potential behind a war where the enemies lose sight of their true goals. While the underlying theme to the story is the absurdity of battle, the message is that people must overcome their prejudices and pride in order to live in peace.
Respect, A Musical Journey Of Women
By Dorothy Marcic
This play takes us on a historical journey of women through popular music. For more than the first half of the last century, the voice of women in Top-40 popular music has been one of neediness and dependency. "I'll do anything for you or just LOVE me and I'll stand by my man;" to landmark songs, like "I will survive" and "R.E.S.P.E.C.T." Watch the musical evolution of women in songs tracking the Top 40 from 1900 to modern day.
