ABOUT THE SHOW
Dear Edwina is a heartwarming musical about the trials and tribulations of growing up. The show’s heroine is the spunky, advice-giver extraordinaire, Edwina Spoonapple.
Thirteen-year-old Edwina 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 neighbours. 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.
Our production will be directed by Theatre Bugs Director Joni Combe, with assistance from the creative Theatre Bugs team.
