Franklin Pierce: Dragon Slayer
(The Untold Story of America’s Debatably Least Effective President)
book & lyrics by Rebekah M. Allen, music by Will Buck
When eighth-grader Jennifer is assigned Franklin Pierce for her class's President's Day project, she's bummed to have gotten one of the history's most forgettable presidents. However, late that night Franklin himself visits Jennifer to tell her the truth behind his presidency: he wasn't boring, he was actually fighting dragons the entire time and had to keep it a secret. In the end, Franklin's story teaches Jennifer a valuable lesson about self-acceptance, whether he actually meant to or not.
