Swamp Opera the Musical

 

Play and song lyrics written by
Shirley Mitchell

Music by
Heywood Banks

Produced by
Shirley & Stuart Mitchell

Recorded at
By The Lake Studios

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.
