SceneOne has kindly printed a preview of Crazy for You:
WIMBORNE Musical Theatre Society will be performing the smash-hit musical Crazy For You at the Tivoli Theatre, Wimborne, from June 18-21.
The show contains memorable Gershwin songs such as Bidin’ My Time, Someone To Watch Over Me, Embraceable You, I Got Rhythm, They Can’t Take That Away From Me and Nice Work If You Can Get It.
It centres round Bobby Child, the rich son of a banking family who is desperate to break into show-business. Sent by his mother to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre, he falls in love with Polly Baker, the daughter of the theatre owner, Everett, but his feelings are not reciprocated.
Bobby decides that rather than foreclose on the theatre he will put on a show to try and save it, but for reasons of his own he disguises
himself as impresario Bela Zangler, with whom Polly immediately falls in love.
Does the show work? Do Polly and Bobby finally get together? You’ll just have to go along to the Tivoli and find out!
Roy Joseph directs, Suzi de Villiers is choreographer, John Stringer is musical director and the cast includes Lee Redwood, Hermione Mason, Phil Evans and Sally Ager.
