Introduction

Perfect places explores good and evil, in an anthropomorphic fantasy musical. Set in a lavish kingdom aesthetically rooted in the early 1900s—when exploration was still magical—we discover how evil first raises it’s ugly head—surprisingly in the midst of a lush utopia.

The witty and free-spirited hero characters—Tiger, Rabbit and Owl—charm viewers. They feel instantly familiar—yet freshly envisioned. The Royal family have it all and share generously.

As a jealous dissent emerges from among their beloved court, the royal court becomes compelled to prove the depth of their goodness, and ultimately, good does overcome.

Wizard-cook Rabbit prepares a feast for Tiger (recently returned from the discovery of a new world), who rewards Rabbit with the keys to the kingdom, upon which Seraph becomes disgruntled and consumed by jealousy. After Rabbit cooks a meal (full of power, life, and even foods combined with multi-dimensional portals) Seraph devours the meal instead. But instead of doing Seraph good, the food poisons his system. Refusing help, Seraphs condition degenerates.

After Seraph attempts a coup, a riff is torn in the harmony of the court. Lines are drawn and the court divided. War breaks out. By the end of act one, those loyal to the kingdom conclude, good must be used to overcome this new horror—the only question is how?

Outside the castle grounds, the country gardens become increasingly dangerous as members of the court attempt to win back the resistance. Cowboy Balloon and Others discover the sacrifices and casualties of taking a stand for good. Seraph’s insatiable appetite inflicts immense damage to the kingdom. The realization emerges, Seraph must be expelled from the kingdom—or perhaps something even worse.

When Tiger and Rabbit confront Seraph in one last effort to inspire a change of heart. Tragically, they are overpowered and devoured by Seraph, all appears lost. Inside Seraphs belly the magical food has opened a portal. The magical undigested food returns life to their bodies and Rabbit—armed with the remedy—removes the curse. They are vomited out. After sealing any doubt of Rabbits' care, and Tiger’s fairness, Seraph is stripped of any logical defense — yet, stubbornly refuses change. Finally, the Royal family use the portal to expel Seraph and the resistance from the kingdom.
