Oops! The Tooth Fairy is a an original children’s musical with 11 songs and six scenes.
The first scene tells the story of how Penelope, a nice but klutzy young girl, became the Tooth Fairy. (Song, “Too Many Teeth”).
In Scene 2, she meets Andy who just won’t smile. Penelope and friends remember a magic word and Andy smiles. (Songs: “Click Click, Look at the Birdie,” and “S-M-I-L-E”).
In Scene 3, Penelope visits Nicole who is afraid because she swallowed a baby tooth. Penelope calms her down by singing her “Penelope’s Calypso.”
Scene 4 opens with Three Old Dogs singing about the good old days (Song: “The Old Dog Days), and wishing they could do the things they did when they had teeth. Penelope suggests they just focus on what they can do (Song: “Just Do What You Do”).
In Scene 5, Mom is sad because her daughter’s cat has died (Song: “I Wish I Could Make You Smile”). Penelope and her friends tell her it’s OK to be sad. (Song: “It’s OK To Cry”).
The Tooth Monster appears in Scene 6, with his son Junior. Junior tells us why he doesn’t want to become a monster like his dad (Song: “Junior’s Rap”). The Tooth Monster tries to capture Penelope and her friends, but they use the tooth brush to drive him away…and Junior says he wants to become a dentist! His dad protests, but finally gives in and the scene ends with the entire cast singing “We All Have the Magic.”
The cast can consist of 6 to 20 actors, depending on the needs of the theatre company.
The entire six scenes run about 80 minutes; scenes can be omitted depending on the needs of the theatre company, without ruining the story line.
