A Memorable Family Experience:

An orphaned girl is forced to live with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps. In our all original Heidi theater script, just as the two come to love one another, Heidi is snatched away by a distant relative who plots to use Heidi’s natural warmth and good character for financial gain by having her be a companion to the invalid daughter of a wealthy businessman.

Will Grandfather be reunited with his beloved Heidi? The answer to this and other intriguing mysteries surrounding Grandfather and Heidi’s final destiny come together in a powerful climax. A tuneful score, the flavors of Switzerland and Germany, and the whimsy of Heidi’s misadventures combine for a fun and memorable family experience.
