Run TimeAround 60 minutes. [Estimated!] Period songs could be added to extend the run time.
MusicThe script contains the lyrics to one song (to the tune of 12 days of Christmas) and suggestions for other songs which might be appropriate for the show. (Note that additional songs will add to the run-time.) Lazy Bee Scripts does not supply any sheet music with this script.
