La Mirada Theater Presents PIPPI LONGSTOCKING 3/12
La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts and American Family Theater present the new musical Pippi Longstocking as the fourth show of La Mirada Theatre's Programs for Young Audiences series. This AFT Broadway for Kids performance will be Sunday, March 15, 2009 at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m.
Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Macrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking - or Pippi for short - lives by herself with a horse and monkey in an old abandoned villa. Her father is a pirate, her mother is in heaven, and she is the strongest girl in the world. Pippi's life is full of adventure: exploring the carnival, defending her home from thieves, and eluding Mrs. Prysselius and the Child Welfare Board. But, when her father, Captain Longstocking, returns from his voyage, will Pippi choose to stay in the villa alone, or to join her father on the pirate ship? American Family Theater's production of Astrid Lindgren's popular children's story brings this most outrageous redhead to life in an enjoyable musical for the whole family.
