SING AND DANCE INTO SPRING WITH "LOVESTRUCK: THE MUSICAL" SET TO PREMIERE ON ABC FAMILY APRIL 21

The Original Movie Musical Features Jane Seymour, Sara Paxton, Drew Seeley, and "Baby Daddy's" Chelsea Kane Singing a Mix of Original Songs and Popular Favorites by Lady Gaga, Madonna, and Whitney Houston

Soundtrack to Be Available On Itunes

Burbank, CA (February 15, 2013) - ABC Family will celebrate spring with the world premiere of the original movie "Lovestruck: The Musical" (formerly known as "Elixir"), premiering on April 21, 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT. "Lovestruck: The Musical" also features a stellar creative team in producer Debra Martin Chase and Terry Rossio, writers Terry Rossio & Jaylynn Bailey, choreographer Michael Rooney and director Sanaa Hamri.

"Lovestruck: The Musical" tells the story of Harper (Jane Seymour), one of the best dancers to hit Broadway. But an injury caused her to leave the spotlight, become a choreographer, and raise her daughter, Mirabella (Sara Paxton). When Mirabella, the star of Harper's next big production, decides to quit the show to get married, her mother is determined to put a stop to the wedding and show Mirabella that she cannot give up her career for love, especially to marry playboy Marco (Alexander DiPersia). After the long flight to the Italian wedding site, Harper takes a swig from a strange bottle that is supposed to dull the pain of an old dance injury. Instead, the elixir magically turns Harper 30 years younger.

Harper's younger appearance (Chelsea Kane plays Young Harper) allows her to secretly infiltrate the wedding - only to confront a huge obstacle in Mirabella's father, Ryan (Tom Wopat), who can recognize his ex-wife in any form. After he too experiences the reverse-aging effects of the elixir (Drew Seeley plays Young Ryan), Ryan teams with Harper to reverse the damage she's done to Mirabella and Marco's relationship, hopefully in time to save the wedding.

A digital only soundtrack will be available featuring the cast covering pop hits, including Lady Gaga's Just Dance, Madonna's Like a Virgin, Whitney Houston's I Wanna Dance with Somebody, and Usher's DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love, among others, as well as original songs. The soundtrack will be available on Itunes in advance of the movie's premiere.

The script was written by Terry Rossio ("Pirates of the Caribbean," "National Treasure: Book of Secrets," "Shrek") and Jaylynn Bailey. Executive Producers are two-time Emmy(R) nominated motion picture and television producer Debra Martin Chase ("The Princess Diaries," "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," "Just Wright," "Lemonade Mouth," "Sparkle," and the upcoming remake of "Dirty Dancing.") and Rossio. Sanaa Hamri ("The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2," "Just Wright," "Something New," and director of music videos for Prince, Mariah Carey, Jay Z and for Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass," winner for Best Hip-Hop Video at MTV's VMA's) is set to direct; and Michael Rooney ("(500) Days of Summer," "The Muppets" and choreographer of music videos for Fatboy Slim and Gnarls Barkley's "Run," for which he won his 5th MTV Award for Best Choreography) is set to choreograph.
