But Dora triumphed, despite having no previous stage experience, and a few months later she was appearing on stage in the West End with Connie Fisher in The Sound of Music." "Part fairy-tale, part cautionary tale, this is the most engaging account you will ever read of a child's encounter with show business, told from her mother's perspective. How do you stop fame going to your child's head? How do you quell your pride and avoid turning into a nightmare Stage Mother? And most importantly, how much chocolate can you eat at rehearsals?" "Stage Mum is a book for every parent who has wondered whether to put, encourage or push their children on to stage, television or celluloid; for every grown-up child who wanted to audition and wasn't allowed to, and for anyone interested in the consequences when showbiz happens to nice - or just ordinary - people."--BOOK JACKET." ;
