Mike Mulligan and his beloved Steam Shovel, Mary Anne, have been together for many years. But times have changed and newer, fancier shovels have become fashionable, leaving them out of work and down to their last dime. Their final hope lies in the little town of Popperville, which needs a basement dug for its new City Hall. The story of hard work, determination and friendship comes to life in this delightful musical adaptation, where we learn that the newest, biggest or most expensive isn’t necessarily the best!
