Come see this heartwarming musical about the joys of growing up. The show’s heroine is an advice-giver extraordinaire, like a spunky, singing version of Dear Abby.
Edwina Spoonapple will 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.
Performance dates: August 3, 4, 5, 10, 11 & 12 (Fri & Sat at 8 PM. Sun at 2:30 PM.)
Performances will be held at Newark Memorial High School, 39375 Cedar Blvd, Newark
