Musical Theatre of Anthem Presents:
Anthem, AZ, January 7, 2019– Musical Theatre of Anthem (MTA) announces their upcoming production of Daddy Long Legs, a musical stage production based on the treasured novel that inspired the classic 1955 film about a witty and winsome young woman and her mysterious benefactor.
Jerusha Abbott is the "Oldest Orphan in the John Grier Home" until a mysterious benefactor decides to send her to college to be educated as a writer. Required to write him a letter once a month, she is never to know the benefactor's identity – so she invents one for him: Daddy Long Legs. Although she knows that he will never respond to her letters, she grows more and more fond of this elusive and kindly "old" gentleman. But another relationship soon begins to develop in Jerusha's life introducing her to a world of literature, travel and adventure. Yet, there is one startling fact that Jerusha has yet to uncover – a fact that will change her life forever.
The talented cast, comprised of award-winners and nominees ages 16-adult, presents the show FEBRUARY 21-23, 2019, in Anthem. The award-winning production staff includes Director/Jackie Hammond and Assistant Director/Stage Manager Jessica Kishbaugh.
