Crazy for You! Another hit musical comes to Massey Theatre thanks to NWSS Musical Theatre
January 29, 2018 – The New Westminster Secondary Musical Theatre Program is excited to be bringing another hit musical to the Massey Theatre stage February 21 to 24, 2018.
More than 100 students in musical theatre – and in related music, dance and stage technician programs – have been pouring heart and soul into the “superbly entertaining” romantic comedy Crazy For You, with music by George Gershwin, lyrics by Ira Gershwin and based on the book by Ken Ludwig.
NWSS is proud of its long tradition of outstanding musical stage productions. Since 2008, NWSS students have been wowing audiences with their outstanding musical productions including
- Annie (2008),
- Bye Bye Birdie (2009),
- Grease (2011)
- Footloose (2015) and
- Legally Blonde (2017).
This year’s production is a romantic comedy that tells the story of dreamer Bobby Child, a New York City banker who longs to perform on the stage.
When he is sent to the sleepy town of Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose on a theatre, he meets Polly Baker whose father happens to own the theatre and he falls dramatically and hopelessly in love with her.
Audiences will be taken on an entertaining journey filled with cunning wit and mistaken identity as Bobby attempts to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre.
The show features many Gershwin classics such as: “I got Rhythm,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” and “Slap that Bass.”
Rehearsals for the production started in November and ran for a month of weekends, with production week featuring daily stage work and preparation before Opening Night.
