Swamp Opera the Musical
Book and lyrics by Shirley Mitchell.
Music by Heywood Banks.
This is a story of love, treachery, and redemption. It is loosely based on a 17th century folk song, A FROG WENT A-COURTING. The time frame is as old as enchantment, the story as new as spring love.
The play opens as our indulgent Grey Cat orphans a baby mouse when he makes lunch of her mother. Awakening in consciousness, he engages Uncle Rat, the most prominent creature at the pond, to care for her.
