An Absolutely Charming Script:

Pollyanna’s cold and demanding Aunt Polly is not used to the kind of misadventures that Pollyanna gets into — including her odd way of befriending total strangers with her infectious smile. Even when faced with adversity, Pollyannna has a secret weapon: a special legacy left to her by her father.

Soon the entire town is playing an unusual game that Pollyanna lives by. Inspired by the classic best selling 1913 novel by Eleanor Porter, this musical features rag time tunes and a patriotic medley, taking audiences back to this charming period in America’s history.
