She’s been a Hollywood legend for decades, but now iconic actress Julie Andrews is taking her talents to a local theater in Connecticut, directing the musical, THE GREAT AMERICAN MOUSICAL based on one of her children’s books. "It's really an homage to the great Broadway musicals that we all know and love," Andrews said this morning in an interview with 'Today' show reporter Erica Hall. Watch her appearance in full below! 

THE GREAT AMERICAN MOUSICAL will run November 8 - December 2, 2012 at The Norma Terris Theatre in Chester, Connecticu and will be sponsored by Essex Meadows.

Below the bright lights of Broadway, in the depths of the historic Sovereign Theatre, an acting troupe of mice rehearse their new musical. When the theatre is threatened by demolition and their diva Adelaide disappears, it will take all paws on deck to fulfill the time-honored tradition: the show must go on! Filled with singing, dancing, and show biz lore, The Great American Mousical is a sharp and witty tribute to life in the theatre and celebrates the two most glorious words in the English language: musical comedy!

The diva Adelaide will be played by Emily Skinner whose Broadway credits include Billy Elliott: The Musical, Dinner at Eight,The Full Monty, James Joyce’s The Dead, Side Show and Jekyll & Hyde. Harold will be played by Paul Carlin who recently appeared as Mr. Babcock in Goodspeed’s spring hit Mame. His other Goodspeed credits include 1776, The Boy Friend, Where’s Charley? and On the Twentieth Century.

Broadway veteran Larry Cahn will play Emil. Mr. Cahn’s credits include The Graduate, Epic Proportions, Guys and Dolls, Anything Goes and The Music Man. Toby will be played by Laura Jordan who appeared in Broadway’s Cry-Baby and In My Life.

Under the direction of theatre icon Julie Andrews, The Great American Mousical features a fantastically funny new score with Music by Zina Goldrich and Lyrics by Marcy Heisler, a savvy Book by Tony nominee Hunter Bell and Choreography by Tony winnerChristopher Gattelli. Sets and Costumes will be designed by Oscar, Emmy and Tony-Award winner Tony Walton. Lighting Design will be by renowned Broadway and West End designer Richard Pilbrow. Sound design will be by Jay Hilton.
