In an explosive production that critics call a "tap dance 'til the stage shakes celebration," the Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company will present Gershwin's Tony Award-winning "Crazy For You" in six performances September 23 through October 2 at the Carson City Community Center.
Set in the 1940's, New York banker and aspiring dancer Bobby Child is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a theater. Instead, he falls in love with the owner's daughter, Polly, and puts on a show in their failing theater to pay the mortgage and win her heart.
Packed with non-stop Gershwin hits, the show explodes with spectacular production numbers, including "Slap That Bass," "I Can't Be Bothered Now" and "I Got Rhythm." Bobby and Polly's romance is animated by Gershwin's best ballads - "Someone To Watch Over Me," "But Not For Me" and "They Can't Take That Away From Me."
Joshua Jessup plays Bobby Child who romances Michelle Freeman as Polly. The cast includes an ensemble of forty singers and dancers supported by a twenty-piece orchestra.
Bob Grant directs the show, Gina Kaskie-Davis is the choreographer and Stephanie Arrigotti is the producer and orchestra conductor.
Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m., September 23 through October 2.
Admission is $18 general, $16 for students and seniors and $14 for youth 17 and younger. Block discounts are available for groups of 20 or more.
