Fall Springs: A Musical Disaster
Music and Lyrics by Niko Tsakalakos
Book and Lyrics by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb

Fall Springs is a semi-charming landlocked cash-strapped town that sits directly on top of America's largest reserve of cosmetic Essential Oils. And it has big dreams. But at what cost? 

With increased oil extraction and new fracking techniques being recklessly implemented, the ground beneath Fall Springs is beginning to crumble. Streets are cracking and buckling. Road-signs, boulders, and the occasional bartender are being swallowed into the ground. And that's just the beginning. 

Only Eloise Bradley, nerdy teenage existential wallflower geology-buff daughter of single parent Mayor Robert Bradley seems to notice that a great catastrophe is imminent. 

But will she be able to persuade her father and fellow townsfolk of the environmental dangers and escape town before it's too late?
