Gyrant, the Terrirble Tyrant
A Musical Fairy Tale
Books and Lyrics by June Barbour
Music by John Balamos
Directed by Mark Britton and Linda Rickel
July - August 2001


In the land of the Etceteras, lives an old-fashioned giant (a really, reeeealy big guy!) who is considered a terrible tyrant. (Now you know where the title of the play came from).

A Witch and a Dragon try to scare the sweet little Troll. (We didn't tell you about the troll? ... Hmmmm .... something to look forward to) A student giant killer comes to the rescue. (Meaning, a happy ending?)

We've had a magic cloak, a slow baking oven, a magic book ...

Dancing shovels ... or are they dancing and singing Etceteras?

This was our first Children's Workshop Theater production.
