civil war pigeons!
Script and Songs by Charlotte Moroz
Civil War Pigeons!, featuring an all-pigeon cast, is everything you might imagine. We meet Annabelle, a young southern debutante (a pigeon), who is daughter to a Confederate senator (also a pigeon), but she falls in love with the enemy, Moses, a black Union soldier (also a pigeon). Together Annabelle and Moses set out on a mission to create a new Bird Song, and use music to end the Civil War.
