Cast Announced for Goodspeed Musicals’ Workshop of New Musical Little Miss Perfect


EAST HADDAM, Conn. (April 22, 2024) Goodspeed Musicals in association with Olney Theatre is producing a workshop of Joriah Kwame’s new musical Little Miss Perfect, with a private presentation scheduled to take place in New York on April 26. This follows a successful staged reading at Goodspeed’s 2023 Festival of New Musicals. Little Miss Perfect is a commission of Goodspeed Musicals’ GoodWorks, its first formal commissioning program to support the creation and development of musicals that celebrate inspiring and transformational stories.


Inspired by the viral single of the same name, Little Miss Perfect tells the coming-of-age story of Noelle, a teen navigating her senior year of high school after her mom and stepdad invite Malaya, a study abroad student, to be her roommate. In an effort to boost her college applications, Noelle runs for class president, and finds herself on top of the social ladder. But as a secret romance buds between the two roommates, Noelle is forced to decide whether she will be true to herself or if she will settle for simply being "Little Miss Perfect."


The workshop cast features Anika Braganza, Sojourner Brown, Lizzy Cenicola, Jaela DeShazo, Jonathan Duvelson, Tyler Joseph Ellis, Ellis Gage, Aisha Jackson, Darius Jordan Lee, Sam Primack, Clifton Samuels, Khadija Sankoh, Analise Scarpaci, Natasha Yvette Williams, Samantha Williams, and Jason Yanto.


Little Miss Perfect features book, music and lyrics by Joriah Kwamé. The workshop will be directed by Zhailon Levingston with music direction by Patrick B. Phillips.


 Blair Russell is serving as a Creative Producer on the project.


GoodWorks is only possible due to the generosity of our sponsors and donors who have encouraged the development of new musicals. These include the Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving; the estate of Christopher Weed; Susan Gonsalves; Jon Lukomnik and Lynn Davidson; Straighten Your Crown Productions, Inc., and the over 70 donors who raised their paddle at the 2023 Gala & Auction in support of developing new musicals at Goodspeed.
