GO-FAME Youth Theatre Company Presents “Dear Edwina Jr.”
2015-04-15 · By Editor
Edwina Spoonapple is a spunky advice-giver with a big heart, loads of common sense and a huge desire to help people, sort of a teenaged Dear Abby. Using her talents of organization, leadership and song-writing, Edwina produces a musical advice giving show in front of her family’s garage for friends and neighbors, exploring issues such as how to deal with a picky eater, saving money and making friends.
But deep inside, Edwina feels insecure and uncertain because she doesn’t have any awards or certificates on the family refrigerator. Her siblings excel at sports, music and math, receiving lots of recognition. When a spot opens up in the Kalamazoo Advice-a-palooza, Edwina invites a talent scout to her show in hopes of winning the spot.
Written by Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, creators of Junie B. Jones the Musical, the story is filled with characters that we all can relate to plus music that will have your toes tapping and lyrics to make you giggle.
Like all GO-FAME shows, the cast is made up of youth performers, ages 8-18.
Show times are Saturdays, April 18 & 25 at 7 p.m. and Sundays, April 19 & 26 at 2 p.m. All performances take place at the GO-FAME Studio in Parkcrest Center. The Studio is located at 3960 N. Studebaker Road, Unit 106, Long Beach, CA 90808. The show is approximately 90 minutes long with one intermission. Out of respect for our youth performers, we request no babes in arms in the theater. Regardless of age, every guest must have a ticket and be able to sit quietly through the performance.
Tickets are $10 per person General Admission and can be purchased online at www.GO-FAME.org.
