by Andy Eninger & Larrance Fingerhut
Welcome to Crusty Isle where local hero Harry Krabbe loves his simple life but yearns for something more. The community’s lives are turned upside down when visiting scientist Izzy Mundt and developer Billy Divagio arrive with plans to transform Crusty Isle into “LobsterWorld” – a research institute/theme park. Will the town become a tourist trap? Will they sell their soul for a chance at progress? Change is on the horizon which could spell trouble for this small coastal community. A hilarious and heartfelt world premiere musical comedy from Maine based composer Larrance Fingerhut and LA based playwright Andy Eninger.

To bee or not to bee? That is the question. A dramatic comedy about friendship, love, truth, and data. Sanam and Ariel are best friends and fellow researchers. They’re on a mission to save the bees and the world. Just days before the team’s groundbreaking scientific presentation, a discovery suddenly threatens years of their work. Should they let a little thing like the truth get in their way?
