THE JEALOUS CELLIST
a two-act musical farce
by
Kico Gonzalez-Risso
 

The action takes place at the prestigious Truffle Academy, a hot bed of music and mayhem, barely controlled by Maestro Lafafarte who wields the baton as Head of the Academy. Into this stew of petty musical jealousies and inflated egos steps the biggest ego of them all - Andre-Lou Woofer, world famous composer and all-round not-too-talented guy. He's at the Academy to record his latest musical extravaganza. What ensues is a symphony of silliness, as a chorus of crazies wreak havoc on the Academy, and an unknown and unlikely hero emerges as the next mega-star.

First produced in 1998 by Magee Theatre, Vancouver, B.C.
