THE HOMEWORK MACHINE: AN INTERACTIVE MUSICAL ADVENTURE
World Premiere- April 19 – 27, 2014
Book by Mark Cabaniss
Music by Keith Herrmann
Based on the bestselling novel by Dan Gutman
Meet “The D Squad,” a foursome of fifth graders at the Grand Canyon School made up of a geek, a class clown, a teacher’s pet, and a slacker. They are bound together by one very big secret: the homework machine. Because the machine, code-named Belch, is doing their homework for them, they start spending a lot of time together, attracting a lot of attention. And attention is exactly what you don’t want when you’re keeping a secret. Before long, things start to get out of control, and Belch becomes much more powerful than they ever imagined. Now the kids are in a race against their own creation, and the loser could end up in jail…or worse!
BCT produced The Homework Machine during its 2013-2014 season.

Mayo and Marigold a topsy turvy tale Book and Lyrics by Marcia Trimble, Music by Austin Davy
Mayo and Marigold are a texty treat. Characters text all over the place. Even the librarian gets the hang of it while hearts turn right side up from upside down in Topsy Turvy Town.
