ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fitz&Startz Productions’ 'Emmett & Ella: The Puppy Plot' premiered at Kitchen Theatre Company in Ithaca in April 2018. This musical for all ages featured book/lyrics by Rachel Lampert and music by Lesley Greene. It was directed by Rachel Lampert and music directed and accompanied by Travis Knapp. Recorded by Nate Richardson of Rep Studio.

The Puppy Plot centers on two lovable, unpredictable canines, Emmett and Ella. This is their second musical adventure, following 'Emmett & Ella's Big Apple Escapade,' also by Lampert and Greene.

It’s summertime. Louella, Emmett and Ella’s enthusiastic and out-going human, is planning a big talent show to raise funds for a new animal shelter. She is over-the-top involved in making this the greatest event her town has ever seen. She’s also agreed to host her grandniece and grandnephew, Sierra and Adam, for a whole month. Emmett and Ella can’t wait. They remember Sierra and Adam’s last visit three years earlier as the greatest time in their entire doggy lives! But when Sierra and Adam arrive, it is clear from their first hello that they are not the happy kids Emmett and Ella remember. What’s going on? Emmett and Ella race to consult with their doggie pal Rags about what they can do to make Sierra and Adam happier. But when they find Rags, they discover he has his own set of challenges: Rags has just found two abandoned puppies. Two unhappy kids, two abandoned puppies! These are the ingredients that set in motion The Puppy Plot. Will Emmett and Ella find a way to help Sierra and Adam have a better summer? Is there a forever home for the two puppies? And, will Louella’s determination result in the “best talent show, and the best animal shelter ever?” You’ll have come see the show to find out!

The cast of six includes Benno Ressa, reprising his role as lovable hound dog Emmett. Natasha Bratkovski, who appeared in Fitz&Startz Production’s The Mystery of the Magic Flute, plays Ella, a sweet retriever. Mike Cyr, who appeared in several past Lampert/Greene collaborations including A December Suite, joins Fitz&Startz in the role of Louella. Veteran Fitz&Startz actors Jewell Payne and Ithaca College freshman Christian Henry play Sierra and Adam, respectively. And, new to Fitz&Startz are Ithaca College sophomore Adrian Amador, playing Rags, and Ithaca College freshman Jahmar Ortiz, playing Louella's good friend Georgina. Rachel Lampert (playwright, lyricist, director), Lesley Greene (composer), Travis Knapp (music director), Hannah Kochman (costume design), Scott Hitz (puppet consultant) Loren Roth (stage manager) and Will Gfeller (assistant director) are the creative team behind this play for all ages.

Fitz&Startz Productions grew from the long-time collaboration of Lesley Greene and Rachel Lampert. They co-wrote their first musical together in 2001 and since then have co-written and/or co-produced over a dozen musicals and plays geared to young audiences and their families. Fizt&Startz Productions works with actors, directors, and designers from the Ithaca community who share our interest in creating the exciting, educational and always entertaining productions that are enjoyed by three-year-olds, ninety-three-year-olds and everyone in between.
