Martin, Scott McGowan, Eddie Pendergraft, Marissa Rosen, Bronwyn Stayoch, Taylor Wilson and Andrew Zutty. Trouble in Shameland features book, music and lyrics by Putnam. The musical, according to press notes, is described as "one man's tragic story; a mother's triumphant return to living, and a young boy's never-ending search for his lost platypus."
