Chicken Man, the musical
You won’t want to miss the beautifully written Chicken Man, the musical! Set in a small village in the Brazilian rainforest, this fun musical is threaded with themes of love, fear and hope. There is more at stake than meets the eye: Everyone everywhere is affected by what happens in the rainforest.
With 11 musical numbers, dancing, and a cast of 60, young and not so young, this is a musical for all ages.
Chicken Man brings to light an internal community struggle as residents weigh the option of sustaining the forest as their ancestors have for centuries versus working for a company offering lucrative pay to scavenge these precious resources. The Great Central Lumber Company is clearing the forest to make grazing lands for the country's growing beef industry. The play opens shortly after the village priest and a local man have been assassinated for organizing against the company. Sophia, the organizer's teenage daughter, is charged by Chicken Man, a local healer, to find a way to keep the village together while he travels to neighboring villages urging a boycott.
Written and scored by First Parish, Concord member Jane Blumberg, directed by Francene Amari-Faulkner, and featuring the work of artist Tally Forbes, this play is wonderfully imagined. Produced by Claudia Nimar. Postproduction proceeds will benefit Mil Milagros and Camino Verde and other social action projects. The stage set and props were made in an environmentally sensitive manner.
