"THE TOP JOB"
Music by BRIAN FEINSTEIN
Book and Lyrics by ROBIN MOYER CHUNG
The Top Job was originally produced Off-Broadway at The Vital Theatre in New York City.
MY DAD HAS THE COOLEST JOB IN THE WORLD
It’s career day at school and all the kids’ parents have really cool jobs… except Jenna’s. He changes light bulbs. The kids think her dad’s job is sooooo boring and make fun of her. Jenna is so upset she considers lying to her classmates out of embarrassment. When she comes home crying, her father invites her and her little brother (aka “Toilet Paper Man”) on an adventure to New York City to see the light bulbs he changes. And he takes them straight up to the tippy top of the most famous building in the world – the Empire State Building! Jenna and the other tourists watch in awe as her dad changes the highest light bulb in the sky.
Jenna realizes she doesn’t have to lie to her peers to impress them; the truth is impressive enough.Back at school, Jenna eagerly tells the class about what her father really does. The students and Jenna agree he has the Top Job!
