Pandora Productions Presents OH MY GODMOTHER 1/7/2010

A New Year filled with laughter, music, and entertainment galore is Pandora Productions' resolution as they ring in 2010 with the regional premier of Ron Lytle's award-winning musical Oh My Godmother!, a sassy, satirical spin on the classic tale of Cinderella and the show's first-ever performances outside its home city of San Francisco. Opening Thursday evening, January 7, this brash and bawdy musical comedy is all about Albert, a love-struck gay teenager living in San Francisco with a haughty, homophobic stepmother, two odious stepsisters, and a drag-loving Godmother. Others in this fabulous fairy tale include the leading queens of Castro Street who worry that their adopted son Prince, through a twist of fate, is questioning his own sexuality. The musical score is in the toe-tapping tradition of Irving Berlin, Rogers & Hammerstein and Cole Porter, and provides a showcase of showstoppers including "Cinder-Albert", "Somebody for Everybody", "Fabulous!", "Old Fashioned Commitment Ceremony", and "It's A Boy". Performances run through Sunday, January 17.

Audience-pleasing and affordable, Pandora Productions continue to be the most exciting entertainment value in Louisville. Tickets are on sale now for $15; $17 day of show. All tickets may be purchased by visiting www.PandoraProds.org or calling (502) 216-5502. Oh My Godmother! is presented by Pandora Productions at the Henry Clay, 604 South Third Street, 3rd Floor, Downtown Louisville. The cast features Robbie Lewis, Amy Holt, Kate Holland, Sara Renauer, Jacob Isaac, Christopher Gilbert, Rusty Henle, Jason Cooper and Russ Dunlap as ‘The Godmother'.
