    A musical about a musical that rocked a community.

    Two families in North Texas struggle with a town battle ignited by a controversial high school musical. As the escalation divides father and son, mother and daughter, leaders and neighbors, all sides must find a way to harmonize before their way of life rips apart.

    An exhilarating world premiere musical, Small Town Story explores the power of theatre, the challenge of empathy, and the potential of young people to change the world.

    • Stephen King’s It inspiration


      In honor of the September release of the hit movie It, composer Jeff Thomson and I wrote a song inspired by Stephen King’s novel.

      At its heart, IT is about the power of childhood imagination and the unbreakable bonds between friends and siblings. In this scene, a 12-year-old Bill guides his younger brother, Georgie, in making a paper boat. Georgie sees it as merely a piece of paper but Bill sees it as a world to explore.

      Clay Zambo and I were a part of By The Numbers, an evening of five-minute musicals based on the numbers 1 – 12, performed at the Times Center June 27, 2015. We were number one – literally – with Decide, about a young woman forced to choose only one scoop of ice cream, and the reverberations throughout her life.

      Over the last few years, I’ve had the pleasure of writing short musicals for Prospect Theatre, sharing the evening with other short pieces by a stellar list of writers. In 2013’s Portraits, Dan Acquisto and I wrote The Art of Joey Feldman, about a rigid and literal-minded safety inspector for a flying rig company who rediscovers the meaning of magic (check out one of the songs). Then last year at The Times Center, Clay Zambo and I were a part of By The Numbers, an evening of five-minute musicals based on the numbers 1 – 12. We were number one – literally – with Decide, about a young woman forced to choose only one scoop of ice cream, and the reverberations throughout her life.
