The Great Ice Cream Scheme

July 21-24

Directed by Nancy Nixon and Kate Jones

Everyone knows Pop Sicle’s Ice Cream Parlor serves the best ice cream in town. Thanks to a secret recipe known only to him, his sister, Nana Peel, and his adopted son, Robin Baskins, Pop has the competition covered. When that cold-hearted villain, I.C. Custard, decides to steal Pop’s recipe, things get a little sticky. Custard hires an accomplice, Parfait Deluxe, ex-chorus girl and total klutz.  Despite her shortcomings, Parfait is instructed to entice the recipe from Robin. But Robin has given his heart — and lips — to Marsha Mallow, the sweet young waitress Nana has just hired. (Their romance is enough to melt your heart!) Employees getting locked in the freezer, a stage-struck prop man, a scoop of madcap characters and a show-stopping fight all make The Great Ice Cream Scheme a delightfully flavorful show!
