Old Saybrook High School Drama Club is proud to present four performances of Leonard Bernstein's ON THE TOWN March 14, 15, 16. Everyone knows the iconic refrain- "New York New York-it's a helluva town....". On the Town is a musical with music by Leonard Bernstein and book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green based on Jerome Robbins' idea for his 1944 ballet Fancy Free. It’s 1944, and a trio of sailors arrives in New York City for 24 hours of shore leave, eager to see the sights and meet pretty girls. On the subway, Gabey spots a poster of “Miss Turnstiles,” Ivy Smith, and instantly becomes obsessed with meeting her. Elsewhere, Chip takes a ride with an outgoing cab driver named Hildy, and Ozzie meets anthropologist Claire de Loone at the Museum of Natural History. By the next morning, the guys and their gals have enjoyed a night of dance and romance in some of the city’s hottest nightclubs, an adventure none of them will ever forget.
All tickets for this family friendly fare are $12 each and are available in advance on line at showtix4u.com or in the school office during school hours.
