Stage Door Theatre's final production in their long-time venue on Sample Road, Breaking Up Is Hard to Do, will open in Theatre 1 on July 6th and run through August 12th.

The sweetly comic story is that of Marge and Lois who arrive at 'Esther's Paradise Resort' Labor Day weekend 1960 on a holiday that was intended to be Marge's honeymoon - until the groom left her at the altar. It is set to the music of pop icon Neil Sedaka, and the score showcases 18 Sedaka classics, including "Where the Boys Are", "Sweet Sixteen", "Calendar Girl", "Love Will Keep Us Together", and of course, the chart-topping title song.

Lois attempts to console Marge by setting her up with the resort's handsome, self-obsessed singer Del Delmonaco, but her plans backfire when Del mistakenly assumes that Marge's father can further his ambitions to become the next teen heartthrob on American Bandstand. Gazing forlornly at Marge from the wings is geekish cabana boy and aspiring songwriter Gabe. And in the meantime, when he isn't entertaining guests with his comical Borscht Belt shtick, house comedian Harvey is secretly carrying a torch for widowed resort owner Ester, who is more preoccupied with keeping her hotel open.

Breaking Up Is Hard to Do will run from July 6 - August 12 at Stage Door Theatre. The theatre is located at 8036 Sample Road, in Margate (33065). Tickets for Breaking Up is Hard to Do are $48. Group rates are available, as are student prices (with valid ID). Tickets may be purchased at the Broward Stage Door Theatre box office at 954-344-7765 or on line at www.stagedoorfl.org.
