MacTheatre Presents the Fun-Filled Dance Sensation ME AND MY GIRL
by Julie Musbach - Feb 12, 2017

What happens when you discover you are royalty? Me and My Girl is a comic, musical romp from the thirties that follows the fortunes of Bill Snibson, a proud Cockney who is amazed to learn that he's actually the 14th Earl of Hareford. But if he wants to claim his title, it looks as if he will have to shed his old life - and love. With well-loved classic songs including The Lambeth Walk and Leaning on a Lamp Post, Me and My Girl won a hatful of Olivier, Drama Desk and Tony Awards. Noel Gay wrote the music; the original book and lyrics were by Douglas Furber and L. Arthur Rose. This heart-warming dance sensation is perfect for the entire family and the show will feature exceptional dancing with cast members who have attended weekly tap classes from the beginning of the school year to prepare.
