42nd Street

Friday, June 1, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

$7 – $14

The Andrews Middle School Drama Club presents “42nd Street,” with more than 100 students taking the stage to mount the ultimate show-biz musical in a celebration of Broadway, Times Square, and the people who make the magic of musical theater. “42nd Street” tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway. Peggy arrives to New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, armed with her tap shoes and big dreams. Peggy’s talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh, who gives her a spot in the chorus of “Pretty Lady,” his newest show.

“Pretty Lady” stars Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva, who takes an instant disliking to the new girl in the cast. When Dorothy is injured during the show’s previews, “Pretty Lady” looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found — someone like Peggy Sawyer! Peggy’s rise from showgirl to star is the stuff of show business dreams. “42nd Street” is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theater standards and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.

The score is chock-full of Broadway standards, including “Go Into Your Dance,” “We’re In the Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “Shuffle Off to Buffalo” and “Forty-Second Street.”

A second performance will take place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 2.

Tickets for “42nd Street” are $7 for students and $14 for adults and can be purchased by emailing sgrant@medford.k12.ma.us or at the door , if available, before the performance. For further information email Sarah Grant at sgrant@medford.k12.ma.us.
