"Scrub-a-Dub Raw" was the product and "Audience Favorite" of the Atlanta Opera's 24 Hour Opera Project in 2010. Nicole and Vynnie had 13 hours (Yay Daylight Savings!) to write and compose the 10 minute opera using a rubber chicken, washboard, and the theme "Family Reunion". The performers has 12 hours to learn and rehearse their parts. The result was a hilarious short opera about a red neck love triangle.
