The musical Down in the Dumps has lively music and wonderful story.  Pink's Junk Yard, owned by crotchety old Mrs. Pinkle, is the perfect playground for a group of neighborhood children. Unfortunately, the County Court is threatening to take away the children's good times and Mrs. Pinkle's livelihood, because she has not complied with the Beautification Ordinance. It is up to the children to salvage their playground.  40 minutes, rated G.
Four different youth casts perform this show, with adults playing the Judge and Mrs. Pinkle.

Sets by Richard and Cindy Thompson, with contributions by Chester Eitze.
