FOLA to Screen “Daddy Long Legs” Musical on September 7
The musical, “Daddy Long Legs”, will be streamed by FOLA on Saturday September 7 at 7 PM in the Frank Heald Auditorium in Ludlow Town Hall.
Set in turn of the century New England, “Daddy Long Legs” tells the story of the “oldest orphan in the John Grier Home”, Jerusha Abbot, and her epistolary relationship with her anonymous benefactor, known only as John Smith. He agrees to put Jerusha through college on the condition that she write him a letter every month about her life and learnings at college. A small, intimate production by two wonderful Broadway performers, it showcases the coming of age of a young woman and her complicated, but heartwarming, love story.
The musical is free and open to everyone and runs about two hours; donations are appreciated. For information, call 802-228-3238 or visit the FOLA website at www.fola.us.
