Plymouth High School will present “On the Town” – featuring the songs “New York New York,” “Lonely Town” and “I Can Cook Too” – as its spring musical.
This jazzy and energetic musical takes place in New York City and tells the story of three sailors with a 24-hour leave in The Big Apple. Each is determined to see all the sights but, more importantly, find romance. Ozzie wants to land a date with a Manhattan beauty, Chip hunts for that special woman, and Gabey wants to find his one true mate – Miss Turnstiles.
Friendship, determination, and pure adrenaline assist the sailors in making their 24 hours worthwhile. Developed by Leonard Bernstein and Jerome Robbins, the show first opened on Broadway in 1944, with three revivals since, the most recent in 2014.
The PHS show is directed by Amanda Smith and Herb Stoltenberg, with choreography by Lori Schmitt, pit orchestra direction by Jason Sebranek, costumes by Eileen Brooks, and technical direction by Gary Kaiser.
Performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 2 through Saturday, March 4, with a matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 5. Tickets cost $9 and go on sale soon in the PHS office.
