Danley Yelnad's family is cursed. They've been cursed since Eli Yelnad forgot to carry Madame Zilchini up that dang mountain. Eli didn't know his mistake would send his great-great-grandson Danley to a youth correctional facility. Now an innocent Danley has to dig pits at Camp Wetwater for eighteen months. Come meet Mr. Man, Steve the Onion Man, Smoochin' Sally and a whole bunch of juvenile delinquents with funny names. PITS! The Unauthorized Holes Musical is an original musical parody that plays tribute to Louis Sachar's brilliant story and the much-beloved Disney film while celebrating the weirdness and passion of the creative team and cast.
