POPCORN! Three Men and a Garage
A New Musical Staged Reading hosted by Civic Theatre
Book by J. Scott Bechtel and Michael Morris
Music and Lyrics by Michael Morris, Jerry Scott and J. Scott Bechtel
Directed by Andrew Wolverton
Popcorn! Three Men and a Garage is a new musical written by Broadway Producer J. Scott Bechtel (Tony Award Winning Bandstand Broadway and Box Office Record Holder A Christmas Carol 2019 Broadway) and screenwriter/songwriter Michael Morris (Busy Being Born, music for Deadliest Catch, 10+ CD Releases) with the musical genius of Lafayette's own Jerry Scott (music for Deadliest Catch, 10+ CD Releases).
Popcorn! Three Men and a Garage is an eclectic new musical that tells the story of Mary Phisher, a young woman ready to begin her life, and Ed Richenbacher, a young, hopeful inventor. Soon Mary and Ed find themselves at a crossroads and must decide what is most important in their lives. With the help of Ed’s friend, Phil, and their next door neighbors, Hector and Emma Jean, Ed will learn the importance of family, self-improvement, and humility, while Mary “rises up” to take control of her own life. Set in Speedway, Indiana, blocks away from the towering grandstands of the iconic race event, Popcorn! Three Men and a Garage is a show that focuses on the importance of the time we have with one another, as Mary and Ed race towards something more, not always being quite certain what lies at the finish line or whether they will arrive in the winner’s circle.
