On the final night of her reign as World Queen of the Cocoa Bean, the glamorous, often eccentric and hilariously unpredictable Cookie Conwell (Emily McNamara) fulfills her lifelong dream of hosting "The Chocolate Show!," where she must choose her successor. Who will be the next to wear the solid chocolate crown? How will Cookie handle the transfer of power? And, oh yeah, is chocolate really bad for dogs? These pressing questions and more are answered in this 90-minute, mouth-watering musical comedy celebrating the world's favorite obsession. Join Cookie and the fabulous Chocolate Layer Players for this joyful and delicious theatrical event filled with thoroughly catchy songs, hilarious comedy sketches, audience participation (volunteer-only) and, of course, lots of chocolate. And, while everyone LOVES chocolate, The Chocolate Show! will be most appreciated by chocoholics age eight and up. In addition to McNamara, the cast includes Laura D'Andre, Scott Richard Foster, Talene Monahon and Andrew Pandaleon. The Chocolate Show! is produced by Golly Gee Productions.
