Picture it: 1970. The Golden Age of Musical Theatre is drawing to an end. But twelve-year-old Muriel Plakenstein doesn't know that. So she runs away from home to become a Broadway star, and meets the Queen of Broadway, Ethel Merman, who takes her to a Hello, Dolly! rehearsal where they sing together. When legendary producer David Merrick hears the kid, he decides to star Muriel in the first all-child cast of Dolly! Naturally, Merman takes her under wing to teach her the ropes of being a star...making little Muriel Plakenstein Merman's Apprentice.

Mermanís Apprentice is a tuneful new musical comedy about childhood, parents, Broadway, and Ethel Merman. Who could ask for anything more?

CD's will be available.


So make your RSVP's now at 1 - 212 - 581 - 3080. You won't want to miss it!
