Written by Michael Nicholas
A senior playwrighting and performance capstone for Michael Nicholas.

Joey King loves making puns. His favorite thing in the world is driving his friends, Kevin and Elle, up a tree with his wacky wordplay. But what happens when Julia, an evil witch’s apprentice (and niece), seeks his help in opening the door to an ancient temple? Will he be able to figure out The Great Pun and let them in? Are Julia and her henchmen trustworthy? Will YOU be able to make it through this “play on words” without groaning?

Who’s to say?

This new musical by Michael Nicholas is sure to bring about laughs, eye-rolls, and facepalms galore. This all-star cast is “pun-believable,” and you won’t want to miss it. But remember: this is a joke!
