Growing Up Sicilian & Female

The musical version of Sadie Penzato's best-selling autobiographical tearjerker focuses on her sister, Caroline, and her attempts to break free of the family's tyrannical Sicilian father. Her quest for individuality takes her from the prom & church socials to the battlefields of World War Two as a member of the USO. Both patriotic and cynical the musical gives us a cross section of the depression and the great war as seen thru the eyes of a young girl trying to be free, as a nation attempts the very same.
