Additional Info

At his recycling center Sailor Mike shows everyone how to use "The Muscle", his term for imagination. Mrs. Zee's art committee descend on the center, calling it a junkyard that should be condemned for a parking lot. But her daughter is fascinated by the place and the creative things people make there. A series of misunderstandings land Mike in jail and the center is scheduled to close. The trash pickers come up with a unique idea to save Mike: they will show Mrs. Zee that there is treasure in trash if you only know where to look. The audience is invited to participate in a trash sculpture contest. Finally, the sculpture is proclaimed pop art, an old secret comes out, a family is reunited-- and Mike and the trash pickers regain their recycling center. Music and lyrics published in the script.
