Amas Musical Theatre Academy Presents THE PAJAMA GAME, 5/7-16
Amas Musical Theatre's Rosetta LeNoire Musical Theatre Academy (Donna Trinkoff, Producing Artistic Director; Rosetta LeNoire, Founder) will present the Tony Award-Winning musical, THE PAJAMA GAME, by George Abbott and Richard Bissel, music and lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, directed by Christopher Scott. THE PAJAMA GAME will open on Friday, May 7 and run through the 16th at the 14th Street Y Theatre (344 East 14th Street).
THE PAJAMA GAME deals with labor troubles in a pajama factory, where worker demands for a seven-and-a-half cents raise are going unheeded. In the midst of this ordeal, love blossoms between Babe, the grievance committee head, and Sid, the new factory superintendent. The Pajama Game will feature costumes designed by Mark Richard Casewell and sets designed by Laura Tabor Bacon.
Amas Musical Theatre's The Rosetta LeNoire Musical Theatre Academy began in the early nineteen seventies as the Eubie Blake Youth Theatre and is now a pre-professional performing arts training program, open to students age 14-20, throughout the New York City area. Classes in singing, dancing and acting, taught by Working Theatre professionals, culminate in a fully-staged Off-Off-Broadway production of a major musical. Recent seasons have included critically-acclaimed productions of No, No Nannette, Footloose, The Me Nobody Knows and On The Town. Many Academy alumni go on to performing careers on Broadway and in theatres across America, and in film and television.
