Melodrama: The Sorrows of Sophia

Melodrama: The Sorrows of Sophia

by: Adapted by Barbara Seagren

Directed by: Shelley Hale
Produced by: Barbara Seagren

That evil villain, Nathaniel H. Nasty, overworks his employees, sells property that he doesn't own, and is threatening to poison all the wells in Poway Valley. What is Sweet Sophia Sweetblossom to do? If she doesn’t marry Nathaniel Nasty (BOO! HISS!) he will steal Father Sweetblossom’s farm, poison all the wells in Poway Valley, and shut down Nasty Dress Factory, putting Sophia and her fellow seamstresses out of work. Will Sophia bow to blackmail?
Or will our young and strong and handsome and rich hero, Ronald Fancy (YAY!), expose the villain’s evil ways and save the day? .
