"Dear Edwina" at Cook Elementary

Dear Edwina Junior, a part of The Broadway Junior Collection is being presented by 3rd and 4th graders of Cook Elementary Fine Arts Magnet School Thursday, Feb. 11 at 6:00 in the school theater. Admission is free. This is a one-act play 70 minutes in length.

Plot synopsis: Edwina Spoonapple would do just about anything to be part of the Kalamazoo Advice-a-Palooza Festival. While her siblings both have proof "up on the fridge" of their accomplishments, poor Edwina has nothing. When a talent scout from the convention visits her hometown of Paw Paw, Michigan, she trots out her musical advice-giving show live from the family garage in hopes of finding her place in the spotlight.

There are approximately 90 students in the cast and most of the props were made by students assisted by art teacher Nan Bolin. Heather Rowland is the director of the show, with choreography done by Courtney Langford. Co-musical directors are Dawn Doughty and Tina Morgan.

Please come out to see this sure to be fantastic performance!
