Shpadoinkle! All Singing! All Dancing! All Flesh Eating!

Cannibal! The Musical (originally known as Alferd Packer: The Musical) is a 1993 black comedy musical written, directed, produced, co-scored by Trey Parker while studying at the University of Colorado at Boulder, before reaching fame with South Park & The Book of Mormon.

Cannibal The Musical! is the true story of the only person convicted of cannibalism in America - Alferd Packer. The sole survivor of an ill-fated trip to the Colorado Territory that left his five fellow travelers dead and partially eaten.

Packer tells his side of the harrowing tale to news reporter Polly Pry as he awaits his execution. And his story goes like this: While searching for gold and love in the Colorado Territory, he and his companions lost their way and resorted to unthinkable horrors, including toe-tapping songs!
