Growing up is hard enough -- now imagine trying to come of age as an American citizen trapped in Nazi Germany during World War II. That was the real-life situation of Eleanor Ramrath Garner, whose acclaimed autobiography has now been adapted by her granddaughter Ingrid, who also stars in this riveting one-woman show. Eleanor's Story: An American Girl in Hitler's Germany traces Eleanor's path from the U.S. to Germany, where her family moved in pursuit of work during the Depression. But when war breaks out, they're unable to return home and instead endure hunger, fascist oppression and bombings in Berlin. Desperately hoping for an Allied victory, Eleanor must first survive the Nazis ... and then the terrors of the Soviet occupancy. The show comes to Orange County after a successful run in L.A.

Quotes & Highlights
“The songs are cheerfully loopy! …like you’d find in any Saturday Night Live Skit…”, “Making the biggest splash are the set and special effects.” —Backstage West
“Ingenious…hilarious…a silly, goofball-funny show that both tips its hat to and derides the campy genre of monster movies…” —OC Register
The producer bills this show as “So gigantic in scope, it requires two theaters to stage it! Not since Jerry Springer The Opera has the stage exploded with such mighty fury, such massive spectacle!” The theater owners say, “If you come expecting a play with substance, you won’t get your money back.”
