James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece and a rare modern classic. The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child—Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival—and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
The Zanfield Theatre is closed…for the summer! A New York heatwave has our gang leaving the city and working at a resort hotel for the rich and ridiculous. Eccentric millionaires, disgruntled desk clerks, gangsters and gold diggers abound! And in the middle of it all, the “Milk Fund Follies” musical review needs to raise money for charity. Can our girls save the show AND end the Great Depression?
The “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” is faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue, and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards make Singin’ in the Rain JR. a guaranteed good time for all. In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes, things aren’t always as they appear on stage! Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career in “talking pictures” without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her.
