Due to a lack of funds, James P. Pennypacker (a shady accountant) announces that he'll have to shut down "The Best Little Theater in Town." That's when the theater's owner Mrs. Goodman, popular director Cecille Deville, and the tightly-knit cast go into action! Two Narrators pave the way as they discuss the elements of a classic musical theater production in this fun-filled "play within a play." Watch the story unfold as this small town theater company struggles to make ends meet. There's plenty of drama, and more than enough comedy in this fabulous theatrical score and entertaining book. Why not make your stage "The Best Little Theater in Town" this year? Recommended for grades 4 and up. Also appropriate for adult performance, excellent for educational "children's theater" productions. Performance Time: Approximately 35 minutes. Staging Suggestions included.
