Songwriting Sisters Musical DrSue: Story

Story: Sue, a mature (“golden girl”) singer-songwriter, fed up with rejections from songwriting contests, decides to quit songwriting. She sarcastically paraphrases a lyric by Dorothy Fields, “What am I supposed to do, pick myself and start all over again?” Dorothy Fields, the only female songwriter from the “Golden Age of Song” in the Songwriters Hall of Fame suddenly appears, wearing a chic 1930’s hat!

Dorothy tells Sue that when she paraphrased her song, the doorway to Songwriters Heaven opened. Dorothy has one hour (or the length of the show) to motivate a female songwriter. If she fails she will be kicked out of the heavenly Songwriters Hall of Fame (Golden Age Section), with an otherwise all-boys choir run by a misogynist Music Director! Dorothy challenges Sue to enter a songwriting contest by submitting twelve songs (one for every month) in one hour (or the length of the show)!

Sue builds her own confidence by wearing a hat or accessory related to each song, performs a calendar year of songs, and meets the challenge. Dorothy leaves, ready to renew her membership in the heavenly Songwriters Hall of Fame (Golden Age Section) Sue sings the theme song: “Celebrate Your Life.”
