Piti Theatre's "Greatest Hits"

by Carrie Ferguson and Piti Theatre

Since 2012, I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Piti Theatre Co., a touring troupe based in Shelburne, MA. Together we've written six "plays with songs" for performance in theaters, schools, festivals, libraries, etc. (we do 3-4 school residencies a year). These "mini-musicals" are each about 45 minutes long and deal with subjects like: honey bees and colony collapse disorder; rocks and minerals; the study of magnets; the history of Colrain, MA; and the effects on human health of electromagnetic radiation. Each show contains about 5-8 tunes, plus incidental music. We currently operate on performance fees, grants, donations and sponsorships which cover the costs of creating and performing the shows.

In 2015, Piti Theatre and I received a grant from Club Passim's Iguana Fund to create a "Greatest Hits" collection of songs from our shows. The album is currently available on BandCamp and will be released more widely online and as a CD soon. Please take a listen to these sample tracks!
