Dear Edwina

Dear Edwina
Thirteen-year-old problem solver, Edwina, dishes out advice with the help of her friends and a little song and dance.

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.

This beguiling, one-act charmer can be played anywhere with extremely modest sets and costumes. Sweet, smart and tuneful, Dear Edwina appeals to audiences of all ages and is perfect for educational tours or theatres looking to entertain young audiences.

Dear Edwina (not the junior version)
We are wanting to do the full version of Dear Edwina next year and are researching the production. In the past, we have used themtpit for approved backing for shows like Legally Blonde and Into the Woods, but Dear Edwina isn't availble through them.MTI doesn't have a performance cd for the full version either.We are preparing for live music, but wanting to see if there are any approved recordings to use as backing. The average age of our cast is 13 and we find it easier for them to rehearse and perform with pre-recorded music over live.
