WANDA'S WORLD is a feel-good, family musical for the "tween" in all of us. It tells the story of Wanda Butternut, the popular host of the hit TV talk show, Wanda’s World, where kids call in to get advice from Wanda to solve their problems. Wanda is beautiful, confident and always knows what to say… in her fantasy. In real life, Wanda is a middle school girl with a big birthmark on her face, who is terrified to deal with the first day of school in a new town. Gradually, with the help of an extraordinary teacher, she overcomes incredible odds and learns to follow her own path.

WANDA’S WORLD was produced Off-Broadway by Amas Musical Theatre, in association with Terry Schnuck, where it received a Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Book of a Musical. It also received a Lucille Lortel Award nomination for Outstanding Musical.
