Hot Fudge Pickles – A Small Town Full Length Musical for children

full length musical for children


Ah, the town of Littleton; quiet, unassuming and as normal as its typical inhabitants. Littleton was your average small American town … and home to Alvin. Some say Alvin was born to create havoc,
others say he saved Littleton from itself in this full length musical for children.

As in most stories, in Hot Fudge Pickles: the Musical, it also happened one hot summer’s day, when Alvin was seen by Kristy and Gramps dropping his pickle into some hot fudge. Legend says he dropped the green stick into the gooey concoction, with an air of intention about him. Others say it was an honest mistake. Either way, what happened on that day in the decade of pivots turned Littleton from ‘nothing-happens-here’ to ‘get-me-there-now!’ In this
two-act musical-comedy, we learn that heroes are made from headaches, cuisine can be coo-coo and as unpredictable as Alvin was, so was the creation that came to be known as a Green Monster.

It’s green and covered in fudge…if we told you more than that; we’d have to kill you.
