LUDINGTON — The Ludington high School drama club will present the musical “Dear Edwina” on Thursday, March 15, Friday, March 16, and Saturday, March 17 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 18 at 2 p.m. at L.F. Peterson Auditorium.

Under the direction of Chris Plummer, “Dear Edwina” is a heartwarming musical about the joys of growing up, from the creators of “Junie B. Jones The Musical”.

The show’s heroine is an advice-giver extraordinaire, like a spunky, singing version of Dear Abby. Lead character Edwina Spoonapple, a 13-year-old, 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 proper table settings. Sweet, smart and tuneful, “Dear Edwina” appeals to audiences of all ages and is perfect for educational tours or theaters looking to entertain young audiences.

Tickets will be sold at the door: $3 for students and seniors, $5 for general admission.
