CALENDAR GIRL Musical: Story
(Song Titles are in italics. Scroll down for song list.)
Sue, a mature New York songwriter, has a rough day (losing a songwriting contest, romantic rejection, and getting caught in a storm, far from home). The subway stations are closed, and taxis won’t pick her up. As her umbrella breaks in the wind, she yells that she hates songwriting and love! A stranger appears and offers to show her the way to an open station. Unsure if she should trust a stranger, she follows him. Exhausted, Sue falls asleep on the train. She dreams that the subway noise is a tornado (like the one in The Wizard of Oz, her favorite childhood book and movie), and that she rides a “Rainbow to Oz.” She meets a Witch who demands that she give up her ruby red musical scarf. Sue resists and says she wants to go home. The Witch says Sue is in no position to ask for favors because (unlike young Dorothy), she’s at the wrong end of the calendar. When Sue persists, the Witch tells her to ask the Wizard, who will want to be paid in golden bricks “Hit the Road of Golden Bricks.” The road has twelve stops, each having a sign with the name of a month. If Sue can write a song for the month, she’ll be rewarded with a gold brick. Each month has a theme (for example, January’s song is about loss, letting go, and moving on). To write the song, Sue must face the issue in her own life. (January’s song is “Who Are You Kissing on New Year’s Eve” and ends with the line “It’s time to embrace the New Year.”) December’s holiday song “All That We Love” traces her childhood journey from feeling like an outsider to a vision of a world of peace and inclusion: “May peace in the world fly like a dove, may all us us celebrate all that we love.” As Sue writes a song for every month, she grows as a person and creative artist.
Sue finally reaches the Wizard and presents twelve golden bricks, one for each month. She tells the Wizard that she is a “Calendar Girl” who deserves to get her wish – to go home. The Wizard takes the golden bricks, and then turns into the Witch! The Witch grabs for Sue’s musical scarf, but it slips out of her hands. The Witch falls backwards onto the subway tracks, gets an electric shock, and disappears! Sue realizes that she has been saved by holding on to what she loves (symbolized by her musical scarf), believing that there are good people in the world (like the kind stranger). and meeting a challenge (writing songs for every month). She has fulfilled the show’s anthem “Hero In Your Heart.” She determines to stay creative and be open to love – in all forms. She wakes up at her own station and walks safely home.
