Composer / Lyricist / Writer

Two-time Emmy Award winner Rita Abrams and her Strawberry Point School kids captured hearts and airwaves worldwide with their chartbuster hit song, “Mill Valley.” But the story didn't stop there.

As a composer, lyricist and writer, Rita continues to garner honors for her stage musicals, children’s music and videos, pop and novelty songs, humor books, greeting cards, and custom shows.

STAGE MUSICALS AVAILABLE FOR PRODUCTION Rita's 4 stage shows, all available for licensing, run from small musical comedy revues to large Las Vegas productions, and from regional satire to Regency England. The "Shows" section has details of cast size, running time, photos, and links to sample the songs.

"Rita Abrams' sharp lyrics recall Cathy Guisewite's comic strip"
- Mike Weatherford, Las Vegas Review Journal

MUSIC: Rita's music spans a broad spectrum: Children’s songs; musical comedy; pop songs; novelty songs (with Dr. Elmo of “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer”). In the "Music" section, listen to excerpts, and read the lyrics.

“Abrams’ songs are playful and extremely easy on the ears”
- Gary Dretzka, Chicago Tribune

WRITING: The same witty humor that amuses Rita's theatre audiences informs her internationally sold greeting cards, and infuses her humor book.

"A wonderful cartoon book, filled with funny drawings,
insight and truth"
- Charles Schulz, creator of Peanuts
