Night at the Wax Museum

Book by Tim Kelly, Music and Lyrics by Bill Francoeur

Presented by special arrangement with the Contemporary Drama Service

The 2011 CVP Youth Theater Production! The hysterical meets the historical in this comic romp through the wackiest wax museum in history!

School's out for summer, but not for six unlucky students who don't know much about history -- they have to re-take the class in summer school. First year teacher Heather Fairchild has arranged for them to help her two aunts set up a new wax museum as a class project. Though the students' eyes glaze over with boredom, there's a twinkle in the wax figures' eyes when a mysterious incantation from the back of Cleopatra's bracelet brings them to life!

King Henry VIII finds himself smitten with Cleopatra, making his queen, Anne Boleyn, furious. If she can just not lose her head, John Adams is there to serve as her divorce attorney!

When Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, Blackbeard and a bevy of lady pirates show up, everybody's out for one thing -- treasure! Supposedly, there's a mighty valuable one hidden in the museum! It's a wild goose chase to find it, with a greedy museum landlord and her bumbling son joining in the mad search.

And why is Lizzie Borden lurking in the shadows, since the aunts say they never had a wax figure of her?! Join the hilarious fun as treasure-hungry outlaws, pirates and royalty mount the greatest siege since Vicksburg! Wax historical in this mad-cap comedy adventure where the magic of history comes alive... literally!
