Old Father Time and the Magic Pendulum

Written by Jake Privett
Director: Patt Ryan
Musical Director: Matt Sheahan
Choreographer: Katie Privett
Producer: Caroline Winiczenko

“Old Father Time and the Magic Pendulum”, is a story set in Everland, in the town of Time which is where the World Clock is kept. The World Clock is the clock from which all time is based… if the world clock was ever to stop, all time in the world would stop. And the Magic Pendulum is what keeps time in the World Clock. But old and grumpy Old Father Time steals the Magic Pendulum a couple days before New Years Eve, thus freezing time and preventing him being reborn as Baby New Year and having to go through the tedious process of growing up all over again next year. It is up to the heroes of the story, Dr Timepiece, Mrs. Hickory and Admiral Dogwatch to retrieve the Magic Pendulum and save the day.  Will they succeed in retrieving the magic pendulum, or will they run out of time forever?
