ABC Family’s “Elixir” Renamed “Lovestruck: The Musical” Premiering April 21, 2013
ABC Family’s made-for-TV movie “Elixir” has been renamed “Lovestruck: The Musical.” The musical will premiere on the network on April 21, 2013 at 8/7c.
Here’s a description of the movie:
“It tells the story of Harper, who is played by Jane Seymour. She was once the best dancer to ever hit the Broadway stage, 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 one-time playboy Marco (Alexander John). 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 thirty 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. Throughout this fairytale romance, Harper, Mirabella, Ryan, and Marco express themes of life and love through song and dance.”
Here’s a note about the upcoming movie from actor Drew Seeley:
