A Brief Synopsis…
Figuring out who you are, where you belong and what you’re supposed to do with your life is hard…especially after being kicked in the head by a horse and losing all your memories. Welcome to Shoofly where the Button M. Britches Annual Shoofly Bakeoff is bigger than Christmas! When a mysterious amnesiac stumbles into Shoofly and threatens to dethrone the reigning champion, the Bakeoff goes awry and causes absurd hysteria in the small southern town. Add three cups of fun, a teaspoon of love and a whole lot of heart and you’ve got all the right ingredients for this wild and charming original musical romp!

Amanda Duncan Music
“Welcome to your happy musical punch in the face,” says Amanda Duncan from the stage as she flashes a knowing smile. Once she starts to sing, the big question is, “How does that huge sound come out of that little body?” Never quite blessed with height, Amanda was blessed with one roaring set of pipes and a knack for writing some of the catchiest songs you’ll ever hear; a skill reflected in her 5 Independent Music Award nominations and 3 wins these past 4 years. She has shared the stage with such names as Dierks Bentley, Lindsay Stirling, and Eric Hutchinson.
As a spectator, you’ll probably be impressed by her hummable
melodies and powerful vocals but what she’d rather is that you find a little bit of yourself in her lyrics and leave a little happier than when you came in.
