Bak MSOA Theatre Department to Present THE BOY FRIEND BOOK, 2/21-22
Bak MSOA Theatre Department presents The Boy Friend Book by Sandy Wilson, with Music and Lyrics by Wilson, direction by Richard Valentine, and Music Direction by Doctor Randy Booth. The performances run Friday and Saturday, February 21 & 22, 7:00 p.m.
The Jazz Age lives on in this light, romantic spoof of 1920's musical comedy.
The setting is the French Riviera. Polly, an English heiress attending Mme. Dubonnet's Finishing School, falls in love with Tony, a delivery boy. Recalling her father's warning to beware fortune seekers, she poses as a working girl, unaware Tony is in fact the missing son of the wealthy Lord Brockhurst. Things get complicated with the unexpected arrival of Polly's father and Lord and Lady Brockhurst--but not to worry, a happy ending is in store for all!
The show's many memorable roles include the flirtatious Mme. Dubonnet, her boy-crazy students and Polly (the role which turned Julie Andrews into an overnight sensation). With its catchy tunes, period dances (including the inevitable Charleston) and winning sense of humor, THE BOY FRIEND is a sparkling, tongue-in-cheek 1920's romp.
The production also features Set Design by Wayne Steadman costume Design by Jack Pinkney.
Tickets are: Adults $15; Students $10. Reserved Seating in the Bak Mainstage Theatre. To order, visit www.BakMSOA.com.
