Keyboard 2


Based on the Academy Award-winning film, on life’s winding road, sometimes you need to pull over and change direction.


This licensed version is based on the Original 2013 Off-Broadway production at 2nd Stage Theatre.

This show is orchestrated to be player-conducted from the Keyboard 1 book. There are 2 keyboards in this show both with lots of programming.

Although Keyboard 1 is the primary piano book, there are lots of other sounds in the programming including various EP’s, Strings, Guitar, Celeste, Harpsichord, as well as some synth elements such as pads and brass.This book does require an advanced player.

Keyboard 2 is heavily programmed and is more synth heavy with lots of other sounds layered in. These include Acoustic Bass, EP’s, Synth Pads and Leads, and Mallet Percussion among many others. This book requires someone who is comfortable playing heavily programmed musicals.

Please contact us before ordering the programming as we are still in the process of sampling the sounds that are so specific for this show. If you know you will be doing this, please contact us as far in advance as you can so we can make sure we can meet your timeline.

From the Tony Award-winning team of James Lapine (Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park with George) and William Finn (25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) comes a musical comedy about one modern family’s unexpected route to brighter days. Based on the Academy Award-winning film, Little Miss Sunshine is an outrageously funny and surprisingly touching musical.

The Hoover family has seen better days. Richard, the father, is a floundering motivational speaker, Grandpa’s been kicked out of his retirement home and Uncle Frank’s been dumped by his boyfriend. Moody teenager, Dwayne, has taken a vow of silence, and overextended mom, Sheryl, can do little more than slap on a smile. But, when the youngest Hoover… energetic Olive, enters a regional children’s beauty pageant, the family thinks that their luck could change and embarks on a cross-country trek, chasing the coveted title of “Little Miss Sunshine.”
