With spooky season just barely behind us, a spider-entitled musical is ready to stream this weekend. But it has little to do with spiders and spooks.

Quick facts

Lock Willow Productions will stream the romantic and heartwarming Daddy Long Legs in partnership with the Pumphouse Players in Cartersville November 6-15. All proceeds will benefit The Pumphouse Players. From writers Paul Gordon and John Caird, the original production of this musical had its run Off-Broadway in 2015 and famously became the first Off-Broadway musical to stream a live performance.

About Daddy Long Legs

Set in the early 1900s in New England, Daddy Long Legs is the vivid account of a young orphan as she blossoms into a beautiful, intelligent and vivacious woman. An anonymous benefactor gives Jerusha Abbott an opportunity to attend college, requiring that she write to him monthly, even though he says he will not respond. Her letters to him paint a moving portrait of her former life in the orphanage, and the development of her mind and spirit.
