Splitsville is a town divided - the Greens simply don't get along with the Blues and vice versa. That is, except for Molly and Butch, two young kids who live on opposite sides of the tracks. The pair try to get their parents to reconcile there respective differences by throwing a big party - which results in a town-wide catastrophe! The two young rebels run away and the town-divided must search together in order to find them.

This is a perfect vehicle for elementary school kids to learn about racism and how to confront it. Smart music and simple, fun lyrics. May be produced by young kids, or by young adults for kids.
