Gonna Have a Boston Tea Party

The 250th Anniversary of the Tea Party is coming up on December 16! The same day that our song about the event will be featured in a preview showing of our latest local history-themed movie at the Garden Cinema in Greenfield at 11 am.

But you will still have plenty of time to get to Boston for the re-enactment events that evening.

"Piti Theatre's album is one of our favorite car-ride soundtracks! We love listening and singing along. It's so rare to find kid's music that grown ups can enjoy too, even after hearing it for the umpteenth time:) We love it!"

– Elizabeth Morgan, Shelburne Falls MA

"My co-teacher and I have had Lend me Your Glasses practically on repeat in our classroom and in our cars over the past couple weeks and they said something to me the other day like, "I feel like if our politicians could just listen to this song we'd have a better world." We've both had moments where your song brought us to tears, actually more like to full on sobbing seshs . . ."

– Erin Scanlon

Background

In 2012, Piti Theatre began their first collaboration with Northampton singer-songwriter Carrie Ferguson for the performance "To Bee or Not to Bee." Carrie quickly became Piti's musician-in-residence and has collaborated on 5 subsequent projects as a performer and composer, including the touring production "Innocenzo" and the "mini-musicals" for elementary schools "Olde Coleraine", "Grandpa Magnet", "This is Your Rock", and "The Time Capsule." The songs from "Innocenzo" and "To Bee or Not to Bee", with lyrics by Jonathan Mirin, have been translated into French and enjoyed by thousands of children and families in Switzerland where Piti is based part of the year. Swiss singer-songwriter Nathanaël Morier tours with Piti in Europe.

In 2014, the collaboration was honored to receive a grant from ClubPassim's Iguana Fund to create a "greatest hits" CD from this rich collection of songs.
