Dear Edwina

Book and Lyrics by Marcy Heisler
Directed by Geri Carlson Sauls
Music Direction by Austin Robey
Choreographed by Michelle Cooper
Produced by Tres Wells

Thirteen-year-old Edwina Spoonapple, advice giver extraordinaire, would do anything to be a part of the Kalamazoo Advice-a-Palooza Festival. Her siblings both have proof of their accomplishments, and 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 older siblings, quirky friends and neighbors. Together, they tackle the world’s problems— from birthday party etiquette to table settings.
