Sonoma Arts Live Theater Company opens Season 2019-2020 with an original musical, MERMAN’S APPRENTICE.
It’s 1970. The golden age of musical theatre is drawing to an end. But young Muriel Plakenstein of Brooklyn doesn't know that! She runs away from home to become a Broadway star, and, in true Broadway tradition, runs right off the train and into the Queen of Broadway, Ethel Merman. Ethel takes a liking to the kid and takes her to a rehearsal, they end up singing together... and, you guessed it! Merman takes Muriel under her wing, making little Muriel Plakenstein Merman's Apprentice.
