Writer/Composer/Producer: K. Lynn Lewis
Release date: April 30, 2011
Length: 1 hour

The premier performance of this original musical was staged on April 30, 2011 by students, employees, parents, grandparents, and alumni of Savannah Christian Preparatory School in Savannah, Georgia. In the musical, Mr. Dodds plays the lottery every day with high hopes winning the mega lottery and changing his family’s fortune. When he does win, and his family thinks they have all they need, a crisis – and wise neighbors – help the entire family realize that money cannot buy everything. This humorous, poignant musical about God, money, and family values in contemporary American society incorporates original songs ranging from gospel to pop to rap to country and bring audiences to laughter, tears, and even to their feet in song. The musical is a great family-friendly choice for church, school, and community drama productions.

A man attains his lifelong dream, only to discover that all the money in the world is still not enough.
