Penn State Centre Stage presents "The Lucky Boy"

Book, music, and lyrics by Kirsten Childs • Directed by John Simpkins

Kirsten Childs, 2019 commissioned writer for the New Musicals Initiative, penned the lastest project "The Lucky Boy" based on an adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale “The Devil with the Three Golden Hairs.” Driven by a need to be eternally revered, King Ambrose tortures and kills citizens who don’t proclaim him adorable. When it’s predicted that an illegal alien baby will grow up to surpass him in adorability, Ambrose finds the child and throws him into a nuclear waste bin. Rogue scientists, defunded by royal order, rescue the baby and name him Lucky. Because of particles of adorabilium in the nuclear waste, he’s now not only immune to radiation poisoning, but he’s ten times more adorable than the King. Eighteen years pass and Lucky has fallen in love with Ambrose’s daughter Vocal Fry. Ambrose consents to the nauseatingly-in-love pair’s marriage—if Lucky can bring Ambrose three golden hairs from the devil’s head!
