Figuring out who you are, where you belong and what you’re supposed to do with your life is hard…especially after being kicked in the head by a horse and losing all your memories. 

Welcome to Shoofly where the Button M. Britches Annual Shoofly Bakeoff is bigger than Christmas! When a mysterious amnesiac stumbles into Shoofly and threatens to dethrone the reigning champion, the Bakeoff goes bad and causes absurd hysteria in the small southern town. Add three cups of fun, a teaspoon of love and a whole lot of heart and you’ve got all the right ingredients for this wild and charming original musical romp.
