Photo Flash: First Look at Will Swenson, Stephanie J. Block & More in Second Stage's LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE
Little Miss Sunshine, a new musical based on the film of the same name, is currently in previews at Second Stage Theatre, where it will open in November. The musical was adapted for the stage by James Lapine, who wrote the book, and William Finn, who wrote the lyrics and music. Little Miss Sunshine will run until December 8. BroadwayWorld brings you a first look at the cast in action below!
When Olive Hooper, a young girl, decides that the title of "Little Miss Sunshine" is within her grasp, she convinces her family to make the journey to the pre-teen pageant. Even though they give in, her family is convinced that Olive's dream is rather far-fetched. Along the way, they encounter several mishaps and their plans are almost thwarted. However, the 800-mile trek brings them closer together and they begin to believe that Olive's dream may bring them all closer to happiness.
The role of Olive Hooper is being played by Hannah Nordberg, who is making her Off-Broadway debut at age nine. The cast also includes Stephanie J. Block as Sheryl, Will Swenson as Richard, Logan Rowland as Dwayne, David Rasche as Grandpa Hoover, and Rory O'Malley as Frank.
