About Flies! The Musical
Book and Lyrics by Larry Todd Cousineau, Music by Cindy O’Connor
Directed by Michael Driscoll
Choreography by Sawyer Smith
Music Direction by J.D. Caudill
In a twisted mash-up of Waiting for Guffman and Glee, FLIES! THE MUSICAL! follows the drama kids from Lovely Valley Performing Arts Magnet High School. The students are left behind in an abandoned forest preserve during a “research” retreat for an unauthorized teacher-written musical production of LORD OF THE FLIES. Gradually, things turn savage in a couple of unsupervised hours as the plot points of the novel begin to come true one by one, in song.
Recommended for ages 16 and up.
