About the Event

This award winning and critically acclaimed company bring you this much loved and timeless musical. The
story is based on the old Gershwin musical Girl Crazy but has been given a new look by Ken Ludwig and
has songs borrowed from other Gershwin properties such as ‘They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Shall
We Dance,” and “Slap that Bass.” Other songs include “Embraceable You,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone to
Watch Over Me,” and “Nice Work If You Can Get It.”
The story is of Bobby Child, the son of a rich New York banking family who wants to go on stage. His
attempts to audition for famous Broadway producer Bela Zangler end in failure and he is sent by his
mother to Deadrock, a one-horse town (or in this case a one-woman town) in Nevada to foreclose on
the mortgage of a small theatre. Bobby falls in love with the only woman in town, Polly Baker and, in
true Mickey Rooney style, decides to ‘put on a show’ to save the theatre. Polly and the townsfolk won’t
take him seriously so his gets the girls from Zangler’s Broadway show to come to town and he poses as
the distinctive Zangler to win Polly and the townsfolk over. Of course, not everything runs smoothly. The
real Zangler turns up, Polly falls in love with the false Zangler but thinks she loves the real one etc. etc.
Inevitably all ends happily.
