ABOUT THE WRITERS: Kieren MacMillan and Jeremy Hutton are writing some of the funniest and most compelling musicals to come out of Toronto since The Drowsy Chaperone. Together, they have written three original musicals, first produced by the Toronto Youth Theatre: A Musical Called Robin Hood (2007), a hilarious romp through Sherwood Forest; Fairy Tale Ending (2008), which mixes well-known fairy tales together in a humorous and touching tale; and ToboR the RoboT (2009), the comical coming of age story about a robot who just wants to be a real boy.
