 In the Summer of 2006, a group of actors staged a worker’s strike against the American Girl Co., one of America’s most popular doll retailers. If you didn’t walk past them standing proudly on 5th Avenue, you probably saw them on the evening news protesting in four-part harmony. Perhaps, you caught the picture of young adults proudly brandishing colorful signs, decorated with ribbons and sequins in the Theatre section of the New York Times, and flipped the page because you thought they were a group of Clay Aiken fans.

Mat Sanders was at the forefront of this dispute. As he boldly stood in protest of the theater management’s unethical policies governing the mini-musical in which he starred, his creative partner, Guerrin Gardner, also rallied behind the cause and joined him on the picket line…

Inspired by a hilarious controversy comes an even more hilarious new comedy adventure. Set against the backdrop of a whimsical New York City, this new-fangled vaudeville chronicles the adventures of Sandy—a self-proclaimed star-to-be with dreams as big as his debts, and Charlie—his hopelessly optimistic and slightly peculiar companion. Witness their rise to the top as they softshoe through a world of corporate corrupt children’s theatre, big-apple ambitions and menacing leather daddies. By weaving together fanciful satire and real life events this stylish and irreverent comedy begs the question,

“How much of my soul must I sell to make it to the top?”
