BOB MARLEY'S THREE LITTLE BIRDS
Based on a Story by Cedella Marley.
Music and Lyrics by Bob Marley. Adapted for the Stage by Michael J. Bobbitt.
Short Musical, Dramatic Comedy, TYA, Contemporary
CASTING: 3M, 3F

Mama says 'breathe easy,' but Ziggy's afraid to leave the house. He's too busy worrying about tropical storms, evil spirits and steering clear of that sneaky, hair-snatching Duppy! But with the help of Dr. Bird and his feathered friends, Ziggy's reminded in soothing six-part harmony that "every little thing gonna be all right."
A jammin' musical featuring the timeless music and lyrics by Bob Marley and based on the children's book by his daughter Cedella, BOB MARLEY'S THREE LITTLE BIRDS shares the legendary reggae artist's message of peace and love with a new generation of songbirds.

"Marley's songs have an easygoing, ambling pace, but this musical is more scrambling fun."
- The New York Times

"You might not have thought of Marley's music as a natural complement to children's theatre. But the two got together, and it feels all right."
- The Washington Post


Book, Music and Lyrics by Jim Walton and Bob Walton
Full Length Musical, Comedy, Contemporary
CASTING: 3M, 3F

The follow up to the hilarious MID-LIFE! The Crisis Musical, MID-LIFE 2! #WhatDidIComeInHereFor? takes us back into the middle ages once again with a hilariously tuneful look at the ache, pains, and joys of getting older.
From the ever-increasing trips to the doctor's office, to the horrifying moment when one qualifies for a senior discount, the ever-growing legion of aging Baby Boomers and beyond are sure to see their lives reflected in this brand new, witty musical revue.

"Mid-Life 2! takes the joys and concerns of growing older and makes fun of each and every one of them. And fun is the operative word here. The show itself is light and breezy, full of gentle and some very poignant comic observations."
- CBS Denver

"A fun, light-hearted dicertissement."
- Florida Theater on Stage
