Little Miss Sunshine

Little Miss Sunshine
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 that 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.

Licensing Question
Hello, It says on your website that Cry-Baby was to have been released this fall and that Little Miss Sunshine was supposed to be out sometime in 2015... Seeing that it is no longer fall and almost the end of the year, I was curious to see if these releases were still on the horizon. I am already "following" these shows and have called with regards to this issue. If possible, I'd really like a better idea of when these shows are to be available and why they have not yet been released as stated. We are very interested in potentially producing these pieces and hope to hear from you soon. Thank you very much!
