So after their one hour performance for the public, the composers and singers, including one that recently finished a performance on Broadway, recorded a demo disc at Theatre Atchison in hopes of finding a producer.

McLaughlin says seven producers around the country have expressed interest in the project script and says it could range from one month, to three or four years before the musical could be accepted.

After that, the producer would conduct a workshop to finalize the show.
