Here by popular demand is the sequel to Play on!. The gang is joined by Phyllis's song-writing nephew Monte when dire circumstances - their theatre in in peril - force them to do yet another show by Phyllis. The intrepid thepians know disaster will probably result: It may be tough to act on a sinking ship but can you sing as the waters rise! If you have never produced Play On!, fear not. Sing On! stands on its own as a side-splitting encounter with a harried community theatre group. The music does not require a cast that can sing well, and the melodies (but not the lyrics) are well-known tunes by Stephen Foster. Everyone will have the time of their lives doing this melodious and absolutely lunatic catastrophe!

We presented Play On! two seasons ago and both cast and audiences loved it, so I was excited to read this 'sequel.'  What a disappointment!  It is an overblown rework of Play On and lost all its fun in the duplication.  It needs some judicious editing and needs its funny bits tightened up.  Our audience would fall asleep waiting for the mania of the third act-which finally began to equal its predecessor.
