After the conclusion of the movie, which was her first movie role, Miss Parton decided to turn it into a musical, and for this adaptation, she wrote fifteen additional songs and modified the script slightly to accommodate them. After its Los Angeles opening in 2008 and the New York opening in 2009, it is now on National Tour.
There are named parts for four females and four males, plus a number of chorus parts.
