The Jazz Musical
by Eli Yamin and Clifford Carlson
Mary, Lou and William discover evidence that the Milky Way Galaxy is dying. The Zodiac Constellations have disappeared. Given a mission by The Big Bang, the children set off with a group of singing and dancing Asteroids to the Four Elements, (Earth, Water, Air and Fire) to learn about the blues from the Zodiac Constellations. They return to The Night Sky and using their new knowledge play the Blues and save the galaxy. The Blues, it is revealed, has been the healing energy holding the universe together for billions of years.
