MUSIC BY ZINA GOLDRICH
BOOK AND LYRICS BY MARCH HEISLER
Dear Edwina is a heartwarming musical about the joys of growing up, from the creators of Junie B. Jones The Musical. The show’s heroine is an advice-giver extraordinaire, like a spunky, singing version of Dear Abby.
Thirteen-year-old Edwina Spoonapple would do just about anything to be a part of the Kalamazoo Advice-a-Palooza Festival. While her siblings both have proof of their accomplishments, poor Edwina has nothing. When a talent scout from the convention visits her hometown, she trots out her musical advice, giving shows live from the family garage in hopes of finding her place in the spotlight. She is assisted by her older siblings, quirky friends and neighbors. Together, they set out to tackle the world’s problems in number after hysterical number about everything from birthday party etiquette to proper table settings.
Sweet, smart and tuneful, Dear Edwina appeals to audiences of all ages and is perfect for educational tours or summer camps looking to add the arts to their summer fare.
