Stratford Playhouse is “Crazy for You”

Stratford High School Playhouse plans to tap its way into another great show on Jan. 31 with the opening of the new Gershwin musical comedy Crazy for You, where cowboys meet showgirls in the pre-Vegas days of Nevada.

Directed by CeCe Prudhomme, the show is about a stage-struck, but down-on-his-luck New Yorker, Bobby Child, who is sent to s small town in Nevada to close down the local theater. Soon Bobby falls in love with the theater owner’s daughter, Polly, and hatches a plan to save the theater by putting on a show of his own.

Through twists and turns, incredible dancing, and lots of George and Ira Gershwin tunes, the plot thickens. Featuring classics like “Someone to Watch Over Me,” ”I’ve Got Rhythm,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” and “Embraceable You,” spectators are sure to get carried away by this show.

Tickets are $16 in advance, and some shows are already starting to sell-out. Performances will be at 7:30 pm Jan. 31-Feb. 2 and Feb. 7-9, with matinees on Feb. 2nd and Feb. 9th at 2:30pm.

Tickets for Crazy for You are available to purchase online now, or can be purchased at the Box Office beginning Jan. 23rd.
