This humorous and touching journey to independence is fueled by lady group doo-wop hits like Be My Child, And Then He Kissed Me, The place Did Our Love Go? and lots of extra. 

“We’re so excited to convey this hilarious hit musical to the stage in St. Jacobs,” says Drayton Leisure creative director Alex Mustakas. 

“Bittergirl: The Musical is a present that reminds us to seek out the humour in life, even in troublesome conditions, and to snigger at ourselves a bit.  Creatively mixed with traditional songs that everybody is aware of, it’s the kind of present that can mend even probably the most jaded coronary heart!”

This present is helmed by director Mary Francis Moore. 

Moore is an unique “bittergirl” and one of many co-authors, theatre officers state.
