This is one of my favorite moments from my musical adaptation of "Tom Sawyer." I have no doubt it'll provide the most unexpected moment of the show!
Tom and Huck follow Injun Joe and his partner to the spooky haunted house at the edge of town. While safely in hiding, the boys watch the men dig up an old treasure chest overflowing with gold coins.
Tom, Huck, Joe and his partner are all mesmerized by the sight of all the twinkling gold.
As if emerging from the chest, girls comes dancing out in a chorus line, dressed as gold coins!
It's a tap-dance production number--HA!-- And for an extra bit of fun, the girl playing Tom's sweetheart, Becky Thatcher, is the lead dancer.
When the girls finish the number, the guys all shake their heads, snapping out of it, and they're amazed at how the gold put them into such a trance. hehe.

And I had a great time taking some tap dance hits and assembling them into the tap track on this.
