Production Description

Casting "The Magic Finger." Synopsis: When Lucy senses injustice, she gets angry and when she gets angry her Magic Finger heats up and then, well, anything can happen. When Lucy gets upset with her best friend William and his family for shooting ducks for sport, she points her Magic Finger at them and turns them all into birdsize people while the ducks become the size of humans.
