Poor Miss Minnie! She has been forced to become the reluctant manager of her old father’s melodrama theater, ‘The Melodramodean’ since he has suddenly and mysteriously taken ill — he thinks he’s a chicken! — right before the judging of the grand melodrama competition!
Throw in a devious and insincere leading man, a deceitful developer and a large cast of misfits and ne’er-do-wells, and poor Minnie faces her biggest challenges ever. This is a Ross Collins original play.
