Background


Based on the Oscar-winning film, Little Miss Sunshine is a new musical comedy from Tony Award-winners James Lapine (Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park with George) and William Finn (Falsettos, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee).


Lapine and Finn's inventive musical version opens in London in a brand new production directed by Arcola Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen, then takes to the road for a national tour.


Based on the film "Little Miss Sunshine," written by Michael Arndt.

Originally Directed by James Lapine.

Performed by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe) Limited.


Synopsis


The Hoover family has more than a few troubles, but young Olive has her heart set on winning the Little Miss Sunshine beauty contest.


When an invitation to compete comes out of the blue, the Hoovers must pile in to their rickety yellow camper van.


Can it survive the 800-mile trip from New Mexico to California - and more importantly, can they?


This uplifting, modern classic celebrates the quirks of every family, the potholes in every road, and the power of overcoming our differences.
