This production is directed by theatre professor Jim Harbour as his final work with the Georgia Southern University theatre department before his retirement. In March, Harbour starred in the school's production of Death of a Salesman as his swansong performance.
Said by theatre students to kind of be the "non-musical version of 'Hello, Dolly' without Dolly," On the Razzle tells the story of two clerks who want to experience adventure in the Big City while they still can. The only thing wrong with their plan: The two clerks keep winding up in the same locations as their boss! The characters engage in several shenanigans, have problems with mistaken identities, and go through the ever-complicated issue of romance. On the Razzle features a cast of more than twenty students, some of which are making their Georgia Southern Theatre debut, and others who have already been in multiple shows there.
