Dairymen: The Moo-sical is the collaborative effort of two sisters: Brenda Strack, (book) and Melanie Wiltse, (music and score). Both sisters have livestock, and farming experience. Brenda milks cows for a family dairy in her Wisconsin neighborhood and has a small herd of Haflinger horses.
The play requires only simple sets and a cast of 12 main characters (6 men and 6 women). There are a few optional small parts and ensemble parts. All of the main characters have solo singing and plenty of dialogue. A community theater group could incorporate children and additional adults in the ensemble numbers if desired.
The play can be performed with piano only but it is currently arranged/orchestrated for a pit band of seven.
Running time is approximately two hours.
