Penned by Catherine Capellaro (book) and Andrew Rohn (music and lyrics), Walmartopia "tells the hilarious and timely tale of Vicki Latrell, a single mom and Wal-Mart employee who speaks out against her company's working conditions and finds herself and her young daughter jettisoned to 2037, into a future where Wal-Mart dominates the entire world," according to production notes.
