Synopsis:

Eight-year-old Tina Denmark knows she was born to play Pippi Longstocking, and she will do anything to win the part in her school musical. Anything includes murdering the leading lady! This aggressively outrageous musical hit garnered rave reviews during its long Off-Broadway run. Set in the era of the 1950’s, this is a dark musical comedy, full of quick-witted tongue-in-cheek humor and over-the-top characters. The music has a very classic Broadway sound, and is mainly performed by soloists. Each character needs to be a powerhouse in their own right. It is a small cast of actors, 6 total, with several actors playing multiple roles. The plot is full of twists, turns, and reveals, and there are no happy endings!
