The inspiration for each show is a fictional town name, suggested by the audience. Katie Hammond and Daniel Tepper populate that town one character at a time, and the show culminates in a rousing closing number (sung by all of the citizens together).
What Town? The Musical is a fun for all ages musical comedy experience. It has been performed for school groups as well as late night comedy seekers. You’ll love having What Town come to your town!
