Daddy Long Legs
MASTER CLASS PERFORMING ARTS TO DISCOVER THE SECRET OF HAPPINESS WITH
DADDY LONG LEGS PRODUCTION RUNNING MARCH 18 TO THE 27
Master Class Performing Arts pre-professional performers will present Daddy Long Legs, a heartwarming Cinderella story about a witty and winsome young woman and her mysterious benefactor, based on the treasured novel that inspired the classic 1955 film beginning on March 18.
Based on the classic novel, which inspired the 1955 movie starring Fred Astaire, Daddy Long Legs is a beloved tale in the spirit of Jane Austen, The Brontë Sisters and Downton Abbey. Daddy Long Legs features music and lyrics by Tony Award-nominated composer/lyricist, Paul Gordon (Jane Eyre), and Tony-winning librettist/director, John Caird (Les Misérables), and is a rags-to-riches'' tale of newfound love.
Jerusha Abbott (Sarah Dworman) 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 benefactors 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 Jerushas life. Jervis Pendleton (Aidan Halsey) is the well-do-do, youngish uncle of one of Jerushas roommates, who introduces her to a world of literature, travel and adventure. Through her correspondence with Daddy Long Legs and her growing intimacy with Jervis, Jerushas letters chronicle her emergence as a delightfully independent New American Woman. Yet, there is one startling fact that Jerusha has yet to uncover a fact that will change her life forever.
Master Class Performing Arts will present Daddy Long Legs on March 25 at 7pm, March 26 at 7pm, & March 27 at 2pm at the Glove Theatre (42 N Main St, Gloversville, NY 12078).
