Ovations at La Canada Presbyterian Church is presenting a world premiere Children’s Musical designed especially for the residents of La Canada and the surrounding communities. Local retailers, businesses and annual events are intertwined in the story of “Sleepless in La Canada.”
Roxy is a popular birthday girl who has invited her friends over for a night filled with girl silliness that includes a pillow fight, a dance contest, a fashion show, scary stories, hair and make-up tips and more. Their party activities are set to music as the partygoers sing along to Roxy’s new karaoke machine. Next door some mischievous boys are having their own noisy “camp-out” in the backyard.
At first the party is innocent fun, but after a while, with the lack of sleep and a display of kid nastiness, the night takes a turn for the worse and things get out of control. Professional television actress Dale Waddington makes an appearance just as things reach a boiling point. The group has to figure out how to reconcile before they leave to go home in the morning.
The “Sleepless in La Canada” script was written by Marian Partee Lamb with music and lyrics by Janet Boggs and Judy Brock. This team also created “Kids of Galilee” (www.kidsofgalilee.com) which was a huge sell-out success for Ovations in 2018.
Presented by NewSong, show times in the Worship Arts Center are Friday, March 8 at 7:00 p.m., Saturday, March 9 at 4:00 p.m. and a Sunday matinee on March 10th at 2:00 p.m.. Tickets are $5 at the door or in advance in the church office at 626 Foothill Boulevard.
