DADDY LONG LEGS

Based on the 1912 novel by Jean Webster
Book by John Caird, Music and Lyrics by Paul Gordon
Directed by Edie L. Norlin
A family oriented musical based on an orphan and her benefactor.

"Daddy Long Legs is a beautiful 2 person musical based on the 1914 epistolary novel of the same name by Jean Webster. I first read it as an adolescent and fell in love with the plucky young orphan who becomes the ward of a mysterious benefactor. When I heard it had been made into a stage show I was very leery at first but traveled to Pittsburg to see it. It was amazing, capturing the characters and the spirit of the book perfectly! I decided then and there to produce it when I could. A small, quiet show, it’s score is simply lovely. A treat for the whole family!" - Edie L. Norlin, Director
