Stockcars: The Musical
Cameron Todd and Malcolm DuFresne were archrivals down at the track. It all came down to the final race to decide who would be the national champion. Only one man made it past the chequered flag that day. The other man would never race again. Fast-forward to 2013. Malcolm DuFresne is now a highflying city councillor, trying to shut the Speedway down. Cameron Todd, whose daughter is shaping up to be a champion on the track, is on the verge of losing his tyre business if he can't raise $25,000. The archrivals are set to go head to head once more. Will Cam save his business and the beloved Speedway, or will the fat cats rule the day? Going down to the stockcars has been a local tradition for generations of locals, raised on the smell of petrol, over-priced hot dogs and Saturday night fireworks. And what goes better with the grunty, raw power of stockcars than a musical complete with not one but two balladeers narrating a timeless and epic tale of rivalry, romance and revving engines?
by John Lepper and Simon Ferry; music and lyrics by Dean Parkinson
