Praise the Egg! A New Musical is based on the bittersweet novel by prizewinning writer, Mary Gage, showing life through the eyes of chickens. The cast includes Prudence the hero hen, Granny Black her antagonist, England the cock, “X and Y” former battery-caged hens, and Man and Woman, the chicken-keepers. The music is by a composer who directs Broadway musicals for kids in State College.
