The show is set in turn-of-the-century New England which tells the story of orphan Jerusha Abbott and her mysterious benefactor who agrees to send her to college, who she dubs “Daddy Long Legs” after seeing his elongated shadow. 

The tale of two lives colliding unfolds through Jerusha’s letters addressing her Daddy Long Legs that work as an insight into her innermost thoughts of the world. Daddy Long Legs is an uplifting piece of theatre that questions identity whilst highlighting the importance of education, imagination and love. With a score of stunning musical numbers that are sure to set your heart soaring, Daddy Long Legs is not a show to miss out on!
