“You Will Be Found” – Dear Evan Hansen at Easter Bonnet Competition 2017


What I can’t believe it. I found another one, Veruca! This is so boring, Augustus. You must be out of your mind. I’m having the time of my life. You’re disgusting. Uh oh. I think I made a boom-boom. That’s not chocolate. Have you ever felt like nobody was there? Have you every felt forgotten in the middle
of nowhere? Have you ever felt like everyone has gone
and you’d been left somewhere on the lawn? The thing is, Easter’s can be a crappy time
for an egg. You know … when they forget where they hid
you? But legend has it, there’s a special place
where every egg matters. And no, I’m not talking about a fertility
clinic. Connor Murphy!? But you’re dead! Spoiler alert! Now come with me …
Where? The place all forgotten theater folk eventually wind up. Carousel Dinner Theater in Akron? Oh, you sad, uninseminated chicken zygote. Much better… There’s a place where little lonely eggies
go A place so high above us that you might get
vertigo We can send you there for free
Like a trippy gnome from Amelie Have you seen this, Elizabeth Arden? I know! That poor pink and blue little egg! No. Bette Midler’s doing a show on Broadway! What show? Hard to tell. The rest of the print is too small! Hey, Little Egg. Come From Away with us to Gander, eh? Why would you go with a Newfie, when you could
have a … NEWSIE? Suit yourself. But we’re signing autographs by the
time you guys are still at intermission. Wait, come back! Even when the kids go rushing past
Holding Easter bonnets with fake grass And you’re abandoned on the ground
You will be found And when you’re bothered and annoyed
Like you’re the whole world’s last ovoid And your yoke has turned to brown
You will be found Hey you! Wise guy! Know what we do with eggs over at A Bronx
Tale, right? What? Make a delicious carbonara! Even when your day has lost its thrill
Like the time Punxsutawney Phil Got stuck under the ground
You will be found Even when the dark come crashin’ through
You will be found When you need someone to carry you
You will be found You will be found
Here I come! Not yet. What are we waiting for? A sign! Oh, of course… The Great Flaming Egg of 2017! No. THAT sign! Happy Easter! And Passover!
