The women of Sorghum City threaten to withhold Ovaltine from the men until they are elected to the town council. They call it Ovaltine to protect the innocence of little Imogene. Even though they make it to the council, they are forced into passing the Great Cider Ban, which will put Lily Ann Drivensnow's cider mill out of business! And who holds the mortgage on the mill? Silas Slither, of course, who is planning to send Lily Ann to a cidery grave under her own Apple Crusher! Will Ned Nobleheart be able to save her? It's doubtful - he can't tell a safety lever from a pump handle! Will Silas catch Georgie and Clem plotting and hiding under Goldie Gottalot's skirts? And what will happen to our heroine, Lucy Sweet? In between the campaigns, threats and flirtations are nine great songs, all easily within singing range. Even the staging is clever, with a machine lever that looks like a drain plunger held in place by a hand from offstage!
"A highly singable score with wonderful lines. We scheduled extra performances, thanks to word of mouth publicity!" - Mark Clark, Director, Baldwin Community Theatre (KS)
