Gaston, proprietor and star tenor of a tacky opera house, can only afford a chorus of two (Pristine and Bubby) and one guest soprano per opera. The guest sopranos keep succumbing to ghastly fates such as strangulation, electrocution, enraged bulls, banana peelings underfoot, poison fleas, falling chandeliers and hypothermia. Why? Because unscrupulous Airwick (Phantom of the Opera) wants Pristine to star-- and at the rate he bumps off her rivals, she'll soon be the only soprano in grand opera! This hilarious melange of crazed desire, gruesome death and bone headed ambition-- done with only four players on a single set -- is a romp for audiences and players alike.
