JPAS Youth Musical Theatre Presents DEAR EDWINA This Weekend

The Jefferson Performing Arts Society will be presenting their first of three Summer Intensive Programs this summer, the musical Dear Edwina, this weekend, June 20-22 at the Jefferson Performing Arts Center, 400 Phlox St. Metairie, LA. Performances will be held Friday & Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 3:00pm.

JPAS' Summer Youth Musical Theatre Intensive Program provides a challenging and high-quality musical theatre education to students of the Greater New Orleans area. The students at our summer theatre programs are challenged, encouraged and enriched through a loving and inviting environment. JPAS Summer Youth Musical Theatre welcomes kids and teens in grades 3-12 each summer.

Thirteen year-old Edwina Spoonapple 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 the proper table settings.

Told through a show-within-a-show format, Edwina and her friends share wisdom that is sure to delight!
