Once Upon a Landfill

Corrupt mayoral candidate, Norm Begotch has come up with the ultimate win/win/win scheme to solve the city’s landfill crisis. The plan includes such features as cross-border shopping, tearing down historic sites and the routine spying on the poor, the needy and the elderly. With a cast of colorful characters and several brand new satirical songs, Once Upon a Landfill takes us on a whirlwind adventure of mistaken identities, incredible coincidences and physical buffoonery.

“Just for tonight we’re choosing comedy
The very nexus of our craft
We’ll be most careful not to bomb, mes amis
If you will just consent to laugh!”
