St. Lawrence College’s Music Theatre –Performance program presents Crazy for You

2014-11-26

St. Lawrence College’s Music Theatre –Performance program is pleased to present the new Gershwin musical comedy Crazy for You, a singing, dancing and comedy extravaganza at the Brockville Arts Centre from December 4-7. This feel-good presentation will have audiences smiling for days.

A New York Banker with a flair for show business is sent to foreclose on a neglected theatre where he falls in love with the owner’s daughter. Big city Follies girls are brought to Dead Rock to put on a show & save the theatre. Join this crazy cast as they bring the flavor of Broadway to the desert of the Old West with a collection of the Gershwin Brothers’ finest songs!

“Our interpretation of the new Gershwin musical comedy Crazy for You blends the witty dialog of Ken Ludwig’s script, the brilliant choreography of Susan Stroman and masterful score of brothers George and Ira Gershwin”, said Janet Venn-Jackson program coordinator of the Music Theatre –Performance program. “We have created a stylish version of 1930’s New York City and Dead Rock Nevada. I’m sure our production will appeal to a wide-audience.”

Featured songs include: “K-RA-ZY for You”, “Slap that Bass”, “I Got Rhythm”, “Stiff Upper Lip”, “Nice Work if You Can Get It” and “Someone to Watch over Me” and showcases the vocal talents and comedic timing of the Music Theatre-Performance students.
