Walmartopia - a future so horrible, it must be stopped! Don't miss the latest musical comedy by Catherine Capellaro and Andrew Rohn, the creators of Temp Slave, the musical. When Vicki, a struggling Wal-Mart employee, speaks out about the company's working conditions, she finds herself jettisoned into 2035, where she faces the ultimate nightmare: an America run entirely by the Wal-Mart empire. Capellaro and Rohn used news stories about Wal-Mart's realities to shape this absurdist comedy. Walmartopia is an expanded, full-length version of the wildly popular one-act play that debuted in Mercury Players' 10th Anniversary Playfest in Madison, Wis. It features a live band and the original songs "Hijack It," "Nibbled to Death by Guppies," "Think Outside the Big Box," and many more. "A wacky and imaginative parody of big-box culture, with catchy song-and-dance numbers and a truckload of enthusiasm from the cast". - the Capital Times
