"The Day Zero Left Dodge" is a fun and original musical with a Wild West flair. It revolves around what would happen if, one day, Zero leaves town. All the other resident numbers find that they can no longer count past nine because Zero isn't there to allow them to jump into the ten's or hundred's place. Things get worse when Crazy Eight comes into town. The sheriff wants to put him on trial for stealing Rancher Seven's sheep, but he can't count our twelve numbers for the jury because he can't count past nine. Will Eight get away with the crime? Will Zero ever come back to Dodge? You'll just have to listen to find out. For audiences 7 & up (including pun-loving, math nerdy adults). approx. 32 min. copyright ©2019 by Winking Kat Books.
