Ashley will star as Jerusha Abbott in International City Theatre's production of Daddy Long Legs. Previews begin February 21 and performances begin February 23 at the Beverly O'Neil Theater in Long Beach. Directed by Ovation nominee Mary Jo DuPrey, this musical is full of wit and heart!
A heartwarming Cinderella story about a witty and winsome young woman and her mysterious benefactor, based on the treasured novel that inspired the classic 1955 film starring Fred Astaire. Jerusha Abbott is the “Oldest Orphan in the John Grier Home” until a mysterious benefactor decides to send her to college to be educated as a writer. Required to write him a letter once a month, she is never to know the benefactor’s identity – so she invents one for him: Daddy Long Legs. Although she knows that he will never respond to her letters, she grows more and more fond of this elusive and kindly “old” gentleman. Yet, there is one startling fact that Jerusha has yet to uncover – a fact that will change her life forever.
