For its WORLD PREMIERE...join the Ritz Theater as the Ritz Mainstage Players present Little House on the Ferry!
Little House on the Ferry is an LGBTQ-themed, two-act musical comedy set in The Pines, Fire Island, the weekend Marriage Equality is passed in NY state. Randall turns 30 and is caught in a love triangle with Timothy, Randall's lover of 4 years, reluctant to marry vs. "love at first sight" Jake, a political activist from Kansas. Randall copes with help from friend Antonio & "House Mom" Donnie. The show has five main roles spanning three generations, a morphing Greek chorus & a drag queen. There are sixteen original songs, written by Robert Gould & Rob Arbelo, including the main theme song, “We're on Fire Island” & showstopper “Jump that Fence.”
Little House on the Ferry was successfully staged at the American Theatre of Actors in New York City, the Broward Center, Palm Beach & Boca Raton in Florida. Little House was the focus of Theaality.TV, “The Making of an Off-Broadway Musical” with host, Michael Musto.
ABOUT PLAYWRIGHT ROBERT GOULD: Rob is an attorney & former judge who taught entrepreneurship at NYU for 12 years. His idea of offering a developmental stipend to theatre companies wishing to produce Little House, is a novel theatrical concept. With hopes of taking the show to larger venues and eventually Off-Broadway, “It’s development money very well spent,” Gould said. “I look at it like a software start-up; they are beta testing it. Similar to a tech start-up, the big profits are in the next release.”
