Monkey Business (The Musical) is a 2009 family oriented musical written by Ronnie L. McGhee. It is copyrighted and published by Clocktower Hill Research & Publishing Group, LLC based in Rome, Georgia.

Plot

Monkey Business (The Musical) is a humorous take on The Country Mouse and the City Mouse tale. Two adolescent twins from Ty Ty, Georgia (Loyd and Boyd) have been transplanted to New York City circa 1932. They have befriended a young lad by the name of Walter Stone with whom, every Saturday, they watch the double feature picture show. On the way to the movies, all three boys accidentally fall into a manhole into the sewer below. Meanwhile, above ground, Walter’s parents, the Mayor, and a cadre of citizens frantically search for the missing children; albeit each with personal agendas.

Things go from bad to worse for the boys when Loyd chastises a little girl (Electa) on the street above them, who in turn, seeks revenge by refusing to summon a police officer and spouting Japanese proverbs.

By the end of the musical, all three boys are reunited with loved ones. However, to the disgust of Loyd, Boyd, and Walter, Electa is thought by all to be their savior and is carried on the shoulders of cast members who sing her praises.
