3. LMNOP, the Muzical: Mark your calendars for a new play based on the book, "Ella Minnow Pea," by Mark Dunn, book and lyrics by Scott Burkell, music by Paul Moesel, directed by Rick Holden, October 4 - 15, 2017, Shaver Theatre, LSU. When letters begin to fall from a monument in town, government officials ban them one by one. Chaos ensues until a determined teenage girl rallies the community to fight for freedom of speech. This unique musical is part romance, part clever word game and part adult fable that reminds us of how precious our liberties are; how quickly unbridled extremism can take them from us; and how important it is to have the courage to stand up for what we believe. A captivating story you’ll never forget!
