Our winning entries

Cathy Willacy, the first entrant to use the clever idea of a letter.

Dear Evan Hansen,
I write to advise you that your son has been removed from being one of the school’s Altar Boyz due to breaking The Light in the Piazza. For The Last Five Years, he appears to have strived to become A Man of No Importance and doesn’t even try to be Next to Normal. I wish he were more like his sisters Matilda and Caroline or Change from being Something Rotten. Finally, his impromptu and vulgar performance of The Full Monty leaves me with no choice but to insist on him Movin’ Out.
Yours sincerely,
Billy Elliott


Peter McDonald, who cleverly broke the titles up with punctuation, while still making perfect sense.

Congratulations, you’re in a chorus.
Line up please, on the right the guys, and dolls on the left.
Girls first. Annie, Tootsie, Aida, Carrie, Matilda, Candide, Rose-Marie, ready ?
Bring it on and dance with me.
On your toes, Beautiful Tina.
What do you mean girls ? What are you so crazy for ?
You, in the red shoes, next to Norma. Looks like you’re never gonna dance !
No, no Nanette, dance a little closer to Irene
Oh, Kay ! and rest
I love you, you're perfect.
Now change.
Unless you want extra help, see Caroline … or change

Honorable mentions to Will Conyers and Crystal Brindley
