Based on the Academy Award-winning film, on life's winding road, sometimes you need to pull over and change direction.

From the TONY Award-winning team of James Lapine (Into The Woods, Sunday In The Park With George) and William Finn (25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) comes a musical comedy about one modern family's unexpected route to brighter days. Based on the Academy Award-winning film, Little Miss Sunshine is an outrageously funny and surprisingly touching musical.

The Hoover family has seen better days. Richard, the father, is a floundering motivational speaker, Grandpa’s been kicked out of his retirement home, and Uncle Frank’s been dumped by his boyfriend. Moody teenager Dwayne has taken a vow of silence and overextended mom Sheryl can do little more than slap on a smile. But when the youngest Hoover… energetic Olive, enters a regional children’s beauty pageant, the family thinks their luck could change and embarks on a cross-country trek chasing the coveted title of “Little Miss Sunshine.”

Filled with warmth, humor, and a tuneful score, Little Miss Sunshine will delight and charm audiences. A true ensemble show, each character is given a standout moment. The minimal technical requirements and small cast make this an ideal show for theatres looking for a big hit in a small space.
