SYNOPSIS: Professor Livingston is out to prove everyone wrong: The Dodo Bird is not extinct. He forms an expedition with his daughter and her misfit students to search for the elusive bird on an uncharted island in the Indian Ocean. But the island is also inhabited by headhunters. Majumbe, chief of the head-shrinking Obuto, is searching for a husband for his ugly daughter. When Professor Livingston’s group is captured by the headhunters, they find themselves fighting for their lives, or rather their heads. And the only way to survive is to have one of their members compete for the hand of the Chief’s ugly daughter. Will their lives be saved? Will they find the elusive Dodo Bird? Will the Chief finally find a man for his daughter? It’s a true island adventure!

"This show was great! The flexible cast size meant that I could hold auditions but let everyone in and that when cast members dropped out, I wasn't up a creek. The show was funny and set and props were easy to do."
