Francis of Assisi is probably the world's most popular saint. His story of playboy turned friar is an inspiring reversal of the usual rags to riches tale.
Francis of Assisi is famous for his love of animals, particularly birds, though any number of the dolly birds of his day pursued him as a rich teenage wild child.
Francis of Assisi is also the patron saint of the environment. His Peace Prayer is much known, quoted and loved. As a song, it's one of the many tuneful hits in PERFECTLY FRANK.
Already hailed in Britain as the ideal school musical, PERFECTLY FRANK has an amazing seal of approval: it was performed in Canterbury, England, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the arrival there of the Franciscans, and the role of Francis (Frank) was played by a young Franciscan Friar!
PERFECTLY FRANK is a musical for any cast and orchestra size. The story telling has been written to allow any number and any combination of narrators and cameo roles.
