COUNT TO TEN, THE NEW MUSICAL

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Dance, Musical
Book/Lyrics: Blevins, Clary. Music: Blevins, Knipe, Sacks & Wollenberger - Dir/Choeog: M. Blevins

Count To Ten is the new tap your feet to the beat musical that charms young and old audiences alike - a truly original family musical. Book & Lyrics by Michael Blevins & Beth Clary. Music by Michael Blevins, Scott Knipe, Bruce Sacks & David Wollenberger.

Once in a while a great musical comes along that captivates and uplifts its audiences. Count To Ten is one of those rare musicals in which a sharply etched script leaves you with characters who loom larger than life and a story that rings true. Count To Ten is a timeless tale of friendship, romance and growth told through dance, song and scene.

From the pen of 'Victor Chase' comes an unfinished script with an unfinished love song that only a change of heart will allow him to write. Desperate to produce his show, Victor finds himself entangled with the ballet dancing heiress of 'Starwood Performing Arts Camp' and a tough talking teenager who's irresistable charm makes him perfect for the lead in Victor's new show. But just like his pen Victor is unsteady and won't commit or could he return to New York with something more precious than a completed script in this musical story of friendship and dance? Count on a fun-filled musical comedy treat that's sure to entertain everyone!
