Golly Gee Whiz is a fun and frolicking family musical based on the classic Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney films of the 1930's. It is 1939 and even the town of Happyville is depressed, especially the kids. But what can a group of kids do to change the town's economy? "Hey, kids let's put on a show!" says Mickey. "I know my father's got a barn!" exclaims Judy. They are sure it will be such a great show that folks will come from miles around to see it, and re-establish Happyville as the bustling town that it once was. This musical in its New Orleans’ premiere from the TADA! Youth Theater in New York City, has a book and music by Eric Rockwell and book and lyrics by Joanne Bogart.

The show features Madeleine Bourgeois as Judy and William Hahne as Mickey featuring Miles Ballard, Calli Farrell, Tristin Harrell, Faith Marie Jackson, Alexis McQuarter, Clara Souvignier, Annie Taffaro, and Mitzi Zitler.  Rounding out the cast are Kayla Alvarez, Azmar Eli, Mary Kaitlyn Kimbrough, Kayla Lewis,  Madeline Moore, Tyrus Norcise, Anre’ Robichaux and Jayla Williams as the "kids on the set crew" and Mimi Bernard, Amaayah Bryant, Taylor Collins, Molly Gaffney, Kerry Lewis and Brynna Robert as the “little kids.”  

The NORD/CCLYT production staff includes Samantha King, director; Myisha Dunnchoreographer; Julie Condy, music/vocal director; Olivia Long with Carolina Gallop, costumers; Michael Dixon, scenic designer; and Mark Montalbano, lighting designer.
