Synopsis: The musical is an adaptation of the folk story of the same name. A traveler named Alex stumbles upon a city made entirely of stones where its citizens have been taught by their evil Mayor to trust no one and fear everything. Alex eventually unites the citizens to work together and teaches them to confront their fears by convincing them to help him cook his world-famous recipe for stone soup.
The Story: Alex (Andy Bakun) is a traveler visiting all of the forgotten cities and arrives in a city made of stone, ruled by a mayor (Addison Lee) who works to keep the citizens in fear of outsiders. One citizen, Nadia (Alexa Shaheen), questions the premise that the town is surrounded by “scary monsters”, and is imprisoned at the bottom of a well for her insolence.
Alex discovers he has run out of food and tries to obtain help by knocking on doors, but no one will share what they have with him. Before long, he finds Nadia in the well and forms the plan of filling it with water to float her up and out. When confronted by a passing townsperson, he explains that he is filling the well to make stone soup in it, but it will take a long time to fill it with one bucket.
Before long, there are many people filling the well with vegetables and other supplies to make his wonderful stone soup. Nadia floats to the top and gets out of the well unnoticed. The mayor discovers Alex and the citizens making the soup and announces to everyone that it is poisoned and that Alex is a thief. Meanwhile, the mayor's assistant, Tad (Brock Woolworth) plants stolen items in Alex's bag, and then “finds” them during a search. Ultimately the mayor is overthrown, and the citizens have a chance to make a better future for themselves.
