From the creators of Junie B. Jones The Musical, Dear Edwina JR. is a heartwarming musical about the joys of growing up. Written in a “show-within-a-show” format, Dear Edwina JR. is the perfect story for a new generation.
Dear Edwina JR. follows the adventures of plucky, advice-giver-extraordinaire, Edwina Spoonapple, as she directs the neighborhood kids in a series of buoyant production numbers for the latest edition of her weekly "Advice-a-Palooza.” Edwina and her friends share wisdom on everything from trying new foods to making new friends through clever, catchy and poignant songs.

April 28 - May 4, 2017, The ACT’s Dear Edwina Jr. cast and crew performed a weekend run of four shows at The ACT, followed by six additional shows for three Title One Elementary Schools in the DFW area. Hundreds of children laughed and giggled, leaning forward in their seats as Edwina and her friends gave entertaining and fun-filled advice about topics such as manners, money, sibling/friend relationships, and identity. The experience was truly remarkable for all involved!
