One-Night Performance Brings Girl-Power, Positivity and Musical Superheroes to Alabama
LOS ANGELES, OCTOBER 23, 2017 — Wonkybot Studios, the kid and family imprint from Metro Media Factory, is thrilled to announce that stage, film and television veteran Eve Plumb has joined the cast of Stewart St John’s Tara Tremendous: The Secret Diaries – LIVE! The former ‘Brady Bunch’ star will portray Mayor Evelyn Callahan, the charming yet manipulative grandmother of title character Tara Callahan (aka Tara Tremendous) in the one-night family-friendly show in Anniston, Alabama.
Produced by the theatrical division of Metro Media Factory, show time is November 2 at 7 PM.
Plumb, best known for her role as Jan Brady on the 1970s TV series “The Brady Bunch”, made her New York stage debut as Miss Abigail in the 2011 Off-Broadway comedy Miss Abigail’s Guide To Dating, Mating, And Marriage which ran at the Downstair’s Cabaret Theatre at Sofia’s in Times Square. Other stage credits include off-Broadway, Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron’s Love, Loss, and What I Wore, and regional theater work. The versatile actress has also starred in a number of film and television series over the years, including Blue Ruin (Winner Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, Sundance Spotlight Festival, Independent Spirit nominee), Monsoon, “Dawn: Portrait of a Teenage Runaway”, “Little Women”, and most recently appearing in “Blue Bloods”, “The Path”, “Law and Order: SVU”, “Army Wives” and as Mrs. Murdock in ‘Grease, Live’, FOX’s live production of the musical.
“We’re over the moon to welcome Eve to the show as the wickedly wonderful Mayor Evelyn Callahan,” said St John, who adapted his screenplay for the stage, and co-composed the songs and score with musical partner Michael Plahuta. “Eve is incredibly talented and we’re so excited for the audience to see her in this role!”
Mayor Callahan is a tough, witty and acerbic woman who’s never met her granddaughter Tara until she’s forced to move in with her. When Evelyn tries to mold her into a mini-me, Tara refuses and sparks fly — setting the stage for a battle of wills when Tara later acquires super powers.
“Tara Tremendous is the story of a young girl on a journey of self-discovery,” added Todd Fisher, COO and co-founder of Wonkybot, and producer of the Tara Tremendous Musical Concert. “It’s about finding your voice, standing up for what you believe in, and not backing down.”
