The Collonge Family
UG, THE CAVEMAN MUSICAL
August 21- September 22
Book by Jim Geoghan / Music by Rick Rhodes / Lyrics by Jim Geoghan, Vivian Rhodes and Rick Rhodes
Ug and his feisty Neanderthal tribe are feasting on a tasty dinner of wild boar when he decides to reenact one of his many feats of bravery. "Pretend it isn't now," he says. "Pretend it is then." And so, without knowing it, Ug invents theatre. When the tribe decides to perform their play for a rival tribe, rehearsals cause nothing but friction. Ug dumps his woman and moves the tribe's babe into her role, the director and costume designer are unhappy, and rewrites are driving Ug mad. The roots of modern-day theatre problems? You betcha!
