Our First Regional Production
A Shakespearean Tale is our newest script and will be FFP’s first regional production. This musical features seven original songs and can be scaled way up for a “real pro” show, or scaled way down for small co-op groups or youth groups, for kids, teens, college students, or adults.
As character and occasional narrator Will Surrey explains, “I told you it’s a fanciful tale.” And it is — featuring a number of “tails.”
Follow a lost Shakespeare manuscript from 1616 London to 1955 New York City, where you’ll meet the lawyers Macbeth and Macbeth, and the girls in the typing pool. Can they sing and dance better than they type?
From literary mice to Shakespearean Southerners, this script dances its way from “harpsichordish” English country to fancy fiddlin’ Alabama country, with a bit of Broadway in between.
