|The Rovers search the Moon|
Performed at Woodstock Union High School on December 19, 2012 at 5:30PM. Just before the curtain opened we peaked into the audience and discovered that almost every seat was taken. The curtain opened and ZP sang their way to moon and back.
Cameo performer Bob Hager was the reporter who broadcasted our voyage, Jim Sadwith handled mission control making sure our launch was right on schedule. Bari Ramirez kept our ZP Astronauts in shape as they prepared for the important mission. The first song was led by Ana and Tea Britton and Katie Leavitt with the ZP singers, singing I believe I can fly.
As stage hands Martha Giller, Peggy Willis, Kitty King and Betsy Frates helped with take off, Alison Clarkson, AKA, Elton John led the song "Rocket Man".
Then all of the men Jim Sadwith, Jed Dickenson, Bob Hager, Elton John, Linwood Thompson, Jamie Hock, Tanner Dow, James Morse and Jarvis Green danced to Frank Sinatra's "Fly me to the Moon".
As the crew landed on the moon they danced with delight until they realized there was not enough fuel to get home. The talented Frank Vanek as "The Big Cheese" performed "Mr. Roboto". The rovers Jessica Burrell, Annie O'neill and Erin Norton helped find and alternative fuel while falling in love with the big cheese. The moon people and Woodstock Elementary School and Woodstock Union High School performers danced in a flash mob to "I gotta Feeling".
All the while our dependable band led by Jessa Lawlor and Linwood Thompson on the guitar, Ana and tea Britton also on the guitar and Jed Dickenson and Fred Beebee on the harmonica.
All turned out well as ZASA used the moon cheese for fuel to return to earth. The cast sang their way back home. The closing song was sang by all "We are the World"
