The Theatre Group at SBCC opens the 17/18 season with Cole Porter's sparkling musical, HIGH SOCIETY, July 12-29 in the Garvin Theatre.
The Theatre Group at SBCC is excited to present the musical HIGH SOCIETY, music and lyrics by Cole Porter, Book by Arthur Kopit and additional lyrics by Susan Birkenhead, July 12-29 in the beautiful Garvin Theatre on SBCC's West Campus.
Imagine that Philip Barry had written "The Philadelphia Story", his classic 1939 romantic comedy, not as a play but a musical, with Cole Porter as his collaborator, and you have ... HIGH SOCIETY! The Lord family now lives on a waterfront estate in Oyster Bay, not Philadelphia. HIGH SOCIETY has it all: classic Hollywood charm, a fantastic musical soundtrack featuring "What is this Thing Called Love","Let's Misbehave","It's All Right With Me" and other Cole Porter classics, and a crazy love triangle.
Directed by R. Michael Gros and musical direction by David Potter, High Society will feature: Katherine Bottoms, Darren Bluestone, Deborah Bertling, Sean Jackson, George Coe, Marisol Miller-Wave, Pacomio Sun, Claire Perales-Duckworth and an ensemble of talented singers and dancers.
