Songs About Growing Up

Ahh, the joys of growing up — now told in musical form and performed by the young actors and musicians from South Fork Performing Arts this weekend.

This weekend, the organization will stage “Dear Edwina Jr.,” a musical written by the creators of the popular Junie B. Jones book series. In the show, Edwina Spoonapple is “a plucky advice-giver extraordinaire,” according to the directors. Edwina and her friends “share wisdom on everything from trying new foods to making new friends, through clever, catchy, and poignant songs.”

Performances are at LTV Studios in Wainscott at 7 p.m. tomorrow and at 2 and 7 on Saturday. All seats are $25 and can be bought online at
