"Over Yonder" wasn't even in the first version of the show. During the second production, my music director suggested on the first day of rehearsal that we needed a rousing Opener. She was so right. Where I had thought the 5-8 year-olds didn't need yet another song to learn in our short rehearsal schedule, the show really NEEDED a rousing Opening production number. So I went home that night and wrote "Over Yonder." As it turned out, this song became the favorite of all the songs in the show.
It pays to listen to your helpers!
