Sheila the Tiny Turtle

Bite-Sized Broadway: A Mini-Musical Podcast

Nov 29 2021 • 50 mins

Season 1 Episode 8 - Sheila the Tiny Turtle - Book and Lyrics by Caitlyn Burt, Music by Amir Shoenfeld.


In the Australian desert, a family of turtles works hard to find food for their sick mother. Sheila, the cleverest - yet smallest - turtle of the family, is mocked by her brothers for not being able to contribute due to her size. When Sheila hears about a cure located dangerously far across the desert, she determines to bring the seeds back to save her mum. While crossing the sand, Sheila encounters a kangaroo, followed by a dingo, where she is forced to use her brain instead of her size to overcome the obstacles and make her mum well.
