From Native Caribbean Foundation; producers of ‘The Big Bad Musical”- the sold out hit for 2016, comes ‘Law & Order: C-rhyme and Pun-ishment’, a tongue in cheek musical comedy for all ages.
With a book by Jane and Jim Jeffries, and music and lyrics by Bill Francoeur, Law and Order – C-rhyme and Pun-ishment follows Detective Green and the Pun-isher; agents of the nursery rhyme justice system, as they investigate a crime scene where a Mister Humpty Dumpty has been found shattered and fowl play is suspected. Can they solve the c-rhyme? With hilarious musical numbers like “Mountain of Love,” “Eggicide” and “What the HONK Is Going On?,” the yolk’s on you if you think this tongue-in-cheek musical is for young children. There are so many puns and plot twists in this Law and Order spoof.
This Native Caribbean Foundation’s production features a cast of 37 young performers between the ages of 6 and 18, and is directed by Kurtis Gross, with Victor N. Prescod as Musical Director and Triston Wallace as Choreographer. Other members of the artistic and technical team include Celena Jadine Espinoza – Assistant Director, Angelique Achong – Costume designer, Salim Charles – Sound Engineer and Denzil Prime – Stage Manager.
