Rodgering Hammerstein

A Mangled Musical

Second Edition

Shiny Bum Singers



Plundering well-known musical works for good tunes is an ancient folk music practice. Here the Shiny Bum Singers have gone one further, arranging their versions of songs from a number of popular musicals into their own musical, providing a heart-wrenching saga of life in the public service, first performed at the National Folk Festival, 2011. This revised version, as performed at the National Folk Festival in 2015, is updated to include the latest political leadership merry-go-round. The book contains the full text of the script and the words of the songs.

Format: A5, 36pp, illus. ISBN 978 1 876668 31 0. Price: $5.00 (Australian dollars)

The Shiny Bum Singers' big book, The OmniBum and the CD An Audience with the Shiny Bum Singers are also available.
