The Zenith Escape — a short musical TYA

by David Crespy

Music and Lyrics by Meg Phillips Crespy

(Perfect for TYA companies with Professional, Amateur, College/University or High School aged actors.)

In this madcap interactive children’s musical comedy, Hank & Cici Hunter are two kids sucked into the mysterious land beyond the TV screen: Zenith! Unless they save their Mom from the evil game show host, Neato Keen and his henchmen, the Couch Potatoes, they’ll be turned into couch potatoes themselves! Many opportunities for the audience to be coached into the action onstage through Creative Drama techniques.
