Summer Stock '03 presents the world premiere of a new musical Dolls!: A Curiously Caustic Cautionary Tale About the Remarkable Secret LIfe of the Dolls Left Behind. Is there more to a doll than is evident in the glassy eyes, painted smile, and plastic appendages? Is the one thing we have forgotten in our journey to become "adults" the thing we should cherish the most? And is the discarded doll merely a metaphor for a child's own feelings of abandonment and loneliness? The answers to these questions and more are astonishingly revealed by nine most unusual young people in this intriguing and magical musical. Written and directed by Chris DeCarlo and Evelyn Rudie from an idea by Playhouse Young Professionals' Company member Danielle Bardellini, with words and music by E. Rudie.
