Sometimes a Rainbow
Cordy Shelburne re-discovers the joy of living from a wise bag lady who enriches her life. Great tunes, a wonderful story, and an uplifting message!
Story, Lyrics, and Music by Tom Northam, ASCAP
Music Arranged and Orchestrated by Dick Wooley
90 minute musical comedy
10 to whoever wants to be in the show
The totally delightful show centers on Cordy Shelburne, an older woman who discovers the meaning of life and the joys of living while surviving on the streets of Washington, DC. There, she meets a crusty bag lady, Duchess, who enriches her life and others who she meets along the way.
There are four major female characters who sing, one major male who sings, one narrator, two minor female and two minor male roles plus a mixed dancing and singing ensemble which doubles from tourists to street people.
The show has one set: a small park with two park benches, one trash can, a street sign, and a hot dog concession stand.
There are eleven songs. Lead sheets for vocals and piano accompaniment come with the script. An orchestrated CD is available. The show consists of ten scenes which can easily be split into two acts.
What they say about Sometimes a Rainbow:
There are people, regardless of their station in life, who can somehow find love, happiness and peace of mind. There is…Sometimes a Rainbow.
