About the workshop:
We spent three weekend days working on the songs and storyline. Instead of a script, we had a storyboard, so we knew what was supposed to happen when and which song to sing, but we improvised the dialogue.
After three days’ work, we presented the results to our non-paying audience, who enjoyed it immensely, as did we.  We were all amazed at the quality of the work after just three days of rehearsal.
