Photo Flash: First Look at The Long Island Premiere Of CRY-BABY THE MUSICAL At The Noel S. Ruiz Theatre

Cry-Baby The Musical makes its Long Island Premiere tonight at The Noel S. Ruiz Theatre, running through May 12th.

This jumping, jiving Tony Nominee is a rebellious teen comedy event! Based on the cult classic, 1990 John Waters film, Cry-Baby features a delightfully demented book from the writers of Hairspray. It's 1954, everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism and Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore. He's a bad boy with a good cause - truth, justice and the pursuit of rock and roll.

Cry-Baby and the square rich girl, Allison, are star-crossed lovers at the center of this world. Fueled by hormones and the new rhythms of rock and roll, she turns her back on her squeaky clean boyfriend, Baldwin, to become a "drape" (a Baltimore juvenile delinquent) and Cry-Baby's moll. At the other end of the topsy-turvy moral meritocracy of 1954 America, Baldwin is the king of the squares and leads his close-harmony pals against the juvenile delinquents, who are ultimately arrested for arson, sending the drapes all off to prison. It's Romeo and Juliet meets High School Hellcats.

The Opening Night performance starts at 8:00PM on Saturday, April 14th! However starting at 6:30PM, outside the theatre, they will have Charlie's Hot Dogs, Roxy's Ice Cream Truck, and Aw Snap Booths!

Tickets are still available for Opening Night but are selling fast! Call the Box Office at 631-218-2810 or visit www.CMPAC.com

The best part? You don't need an Opening Night ticket to participate in the festivities! All patrons are encouraged to come on down even if you're seeing the show at a later date!
