RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

This hilarious play is about an old scoutmaster trying to hold his troop together. There are only four boys left and they would rather be off drinking beer than listening to "The Colonel" rattle on about the values exemplified in the Boy Scout Code. Almost An Eagle takes place on the night before and immediately after the annual Memorial Day ceremony, which is a disaster for the troop. The Colonel is dismissed as Scoutmaster, but the boys rally around him and the play ends on an optimistic and poignant note. Beloved character actor James Whitmore created "The Colonel" on Broadway.
