Book and Lyrics by Michael C. Stepowany

Running time : 45 minutes

Setting: 7 foot tall blades of green grass are circled around the hut of Eartha

Cast: 8 total  - Eartha – Female.  One ‘Emcee’, 3 Ants, 3 Grasshoppers

Based on the Aesop’s Fable, the Ant & the Grasshopper.

It is summertime in the glen as Eartha Windinfire, or “Mother Nature” looks on from her hut, she referees a group of fun-loving grasshoppers and hard working ants.  Told by the emcee, the story weaves the well-known tale of “never putting off till tomorrow.”  As the seasons change the procrastinating grasshoppers pay the penalty by nearly freezing to death during the long winter months. Back from her trip to Miami, Eartha Windinfire summons the sun to thaw the Popsicle hoppers.  As the musical ends, the Hoppers and Power Ants vow to always “take care of business” before setting out on a course of fun.
