Understood Betsy is the story of a timid, overprotected young girl who is thrust on a difficult journey that challenges her to learn to think and act for herself.  Will city-raised Betsy be able to adjust to life in rural Vermont in the early 1900's?  This marvelous, musical journey follows Betsy as she finds the strength within herself to flourish and grow in a strange new environment. Understood Betsy is a classic account of a young girl learning to embrace independence and responsibility.  It is a warm story that will touch the hearts of children and adults.

Based on the classic novel by Dorothy Canfield Fisher, the book and lyrics for the show are by Stacey Luftig. The music is by Mary Feinsinger.
