Description

Full Length Musical

Here is the world's first polka musical. Evelyn, an intense 18 year old from Texas, has just discovered that dethroned polka king Hank Czerniak is her father. They unite Hank's legendary band and hit the road looking for Evelyn's mother. Part detective story and part caper comedy, this is a father daughter love story and an exuberant celebration of polka passion. Originally commissioned by the Mad River Theatre Works in Ohio, it has had successful runs from coast to coast.
