We have added a new page for our latest musical, WIND IN THE WILLOWS. Be sure to click on it in the menu bar and treat yourself to the talents of 2 extraordinary young actresses who we were fortunate enough to work with in bringing our music and words to life.


And if you  are an Alice in Wonderland fan,  be sure to click on THE GOLDEN AFTERNOON tab in the menu bar. It is about the real Alice and Lewis Carroll's muse and we are in talks to have it produced in England next year. Listening to the tracks you can enjoy the talents of PEGGY CHIN and her daughter AMANDA; also, the always wonderful CANDY BENGE.
