About this show

Loosely based on Judy Blume's popular coming of age novel published in 1970, this musical parody lovingly recalls the sights, sentiments, and SOUNDS of the era with such songs from the Carpenters catalog as Rainy Days and Mondays, Close to You, Top of the World, and We've Only Just Begun. New to this production and just in time for the holidays, music from the cherished holiday album Carpenters Christmas Portrait. Come watch Margaret as she moves to New Jersey, falls in love with the boy next door, enters sixth grade, joins an all-girl group, obsesses about bras and sanitary belts, and (finally!) becomes a woman - all while singing the hits of the Carpenters!
