Amalia and Georg are two shop clerks who aren't quite best of friends. After both respond to a "lonely hearts advertisement" they now live for the letters from their anonymous romantic pen pals, not suspecting that their respective correspondents are none other than each other! Set in a 1930s European perfumery, "She Loves Me" is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old world elegance.
Considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written, "She Loves Me" was nominated for five Tony Awards in 1964. The 1993 Broadway revival won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical and the 1994 Critics Circle Award for Best Musical.
The cast includes Sara Risner as Amalia, Josh Kwasniewski as Georg Nowack, Chelsea Herald as Ilona, Cole LaFonte as Kodaly, Doug Herman as Maraczek, Isaac Sprague as Arpad, and Nick Johnson as Ladislov Sirpos.
Besides onstage training there are many opportunities for new artists, young and old, to acquire different skills associated with the theatre, including set design and construction, stage management, costumes, and make-up. Our training programs help to give the apprentice a better understanding of theatre in general, while providing them experience in the different areas associated with the production. Performance Now dedicates at least one show each year to this purpose. "...Bringing professional quality entertainment at affordable prices."
