Plot Twist – Fine Arts Challenge - 3rd place & Renaissance Award (David Baxter)

 

Received the Renaissance Award for: This team sang and danced their way into our hearts from the very moment time began. Through the power of song, this team walked us through the tale of a mailman, wrongfully accused of a dessert-based murder he did not commit. With a poisoned cookie used as a tool for revenge, this fast-paced, humorous presentation featured detectives, cowboys, and poets singing their side of the story in a non-stop journey through thoughtfully crafted musical styles. A trail of cookie crumbs revealed that the detective committed the murder, acquitting the innocent mailman. It was a true musical extravaganza that left the audience begging for an encore.
