1927. Clotilde “Coco” Irvine, was given a diary for Christmas in which she faithfully chronicles the ups and downs of her rollercoaster year. She pens, “This is to be my most private account of everything that happens to me. No one must read further under pain of death! A curse shall befall any who disregard this warning! Everything is quite different in my life because of boys!” Coco is a bright, adventurous, wickedly funny heroine who is constantly in a fix at home and school “through no fault of my own!” This wonderful History Theatre revival features some of the greatest songs of the 1920s. It’s a charming, funny and delightful entertainment for the entire family.

Adapted for the stage by Ron Peluso and Bob Beverage
Directed by Ron Peluso
with Andrea Wollenberg, Jake Endres, and Dora Dolphin & Arden Michalec as young Coco Irvine
