Alberto and Tina love to dance the tango.
One day while tangoing, Alberto slips
on a bar of soap and ends up flying head-first down the toilet!
Tina reaches for him and grabs the pull chain by mistake, flushing
What happens to Alberto down below?
He performs with a circus of sewer rats (of course!) until he realises how worried Tina must be! Trying to get home, he pops up in toilets all over the city, causing panic until the mayor brings in Butch Everglades the Alligator hunter! Will Alberto make it back to Tina in time?
“My kids sang the songs from this for weeks afterwards” said a father who took his kids to the Edmonton Fringe production.
