Little Miss Sunshine: A musical based on the film

  • Little Miss Slider Image

Music Theatre of Madison, a professional company focused on new and lesser-known musicals, brings the delightful, heartwarming, and hilarious LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE to the stage. The Hoover family is having some issues. Dad’s a struggling entrepreneur. Mom’s trying to pay the bills. Uncle Frank has lost his lover and his job. Grandpa got kicked out of the retirement home. And teenage Dwayne hasn’t spoken in three months. But when quirky, 8-year-old Olive is a finalist in the Little Miss Sunshine beauty pageant, they attempt to put their troubles aside, climbing into a dilapidated van and driving cross country to get her to the competition. Based on the 2006 Oscar-winning film, LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE is a hilarious, heartfelt tale about self acceptance, true beauty, and what it means to be a winner.
