About The Pier Point Lobster Race

A One Act Operetta

The town of Pier Point is hosting its tri-centennial celebration, which will culminate in the town’s hotly anticipated lobster race. Following the race will be the sunset wedding of Lucy Parker and Nathan Bourne on the Pier, followed by a lobster feast. The winning lobster from the race will be pardoned and released prior to the feast. But the Pier has been double-booked, and a real estate magnate has their eye on developing the waterfront into condos. Can one lobster save the day?
