Beloved icon Julie Andrews and her daughter, bestselling author Emma Walton Hamilton, have written a charming celebration of the arts born from a true story in WAITING IN THE WINGS. One spring, outside of the Bay Street Theater on Long Island, NY, a family of ducks nested and hatched in a nearby planter and paraded down to the water while theater staff looked on. As co-founder of the theater, Emma was front and center that day, and WAITING IN THE WINGS takes that inspiration to depict a fun, kid-friendly story that highlights the wonders of theater – co-written by one of the greatest icons of stage and screen.
