Dear Edwina, Jr. Cast List

Boy, what a tough decision we had. We have a truly talented cast. Just to clarify, almost everyone will be featured in each musical number in the show, and we couldn't type every individual part in time. So most of that will be explained in rehearsals. We can't wait to get started! Please send a message to this site to accept your part. A parent meeting will be tomorrow at 7pm at Christ Episcopal, followed by a full cast rehearsal until 9.

Dear Edwina Jr. will be presented at the Clark State Performing Arts Center in the Turner Studio Theatre on September 18, 19, and 20.

DEAR EDWINA is a heartwarming musical about the joys of growing up.

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 the proper table settings.

It is told through a show-within-a-show format. Edwina and her friends share wisdom that is sure to delight. Both adults and children will thoroughly enjoy watching this cast playing silly wacky little kids who sing and dance.
