About The Play
Comedy. 40-50 minutes. 3 males, 10 females, 4+ either (9-30+ performers possible). Suitable for high school and older performers (and possibly advanced middle school performers), and middle school or older audiences.
An abandoned set of crutches. Tiny Tim in training to run the marathon. A chance to inspire millions, unless...somebody already has that job. With the powers-that-be backing Oliver Twist, once lowly orphan and now panic attack-ridden pitchman for juicers and cereal who is forced to endlessly reenact his walk to London and his days in the workhouse--and the homicidal trio of Cinderella, Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood on the loose--Tiny Tim may not make it to the starting line.
