The South Pasadena Middle School's drama department wants you to come along and listen to their Lullaby of Broadway.
For the first time, SPMS will bring 42nd Street to the student stage. Based on the classic 1933 movie musical of the same name, 42nd Street tells the story of a starry-eyed young actress named Peggy Sawyer who has come to audition for the new Julian Marsh musical that is about to open on Broadway.
The production is a tap musical, and many of the students who hadn't had previous dance experience are learning to tap, said SPMS Director Marion Tompkins.
"They're working really hard,'' she said one recent afternoon, noting the kids rehearse several times a week after school.
The shows will be at the school on the following dates and times:
• Friday April 19TH, 7:30 pm
• Saturday April 20TH, 7:30 pm
• Sunday April 21ST, 2:30 pm Matinee
$14 Patron Tickets, rows B-S of the Lower Auditorium & the front 3 rows of the Balcony.
$8 General Admission, last 3 rows of the Lower Auditorium and Upper Balcony seats. Proceeds from Patron Tickets go to Stage Improvements.
Online Ticket Orders, payment via PayPal is available online at spms.spusd.net under “News.''
