MST Education presents The Ballad of Janis Matthews and the Dodo Scouts, performed by their Teen Company to a live band.
This new musical, with a folk-inspired score, is set in 1968, when young Janis Matthews, whose parents recently divorced, finds her life uprooted when she and her mother move to Denver. Janis finds herself stuck with one thing left to her name—her identity as a Dodo Scout. When she gets her Scout Troop lost in the woods, her ability to connect and lead other people is pushed to its limits.
