CASSIDY 2014 SEASON


Guys and Dolls

February 7th - February 23rd  2014  
Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser
 

Based on The Idyll of Sarah Brown and characters by Damon Runyon This oddball romantic comedy considered by many to be the perfect musical introduces us to a cast of vivid characters, including Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight "mission doll," Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler, Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game. With songs like "Bushel and a Peck", "Sit Down You're Rockin' The Boat", and "Luck Be a Lady," you can gamble knowing you'll win!


A Streetcar Named Desire

April 11th - April 27th  2014  
By Tennessee Williams
 
One of our generation’s most poignant dramas. Blanche duBois arrives at her sister Stella’s New Orleans apartment seeking refuge from a troubled past. Her ethereal spirit irks Stella’s husband, the coarse Stanley Kowalski. Crudely and relentlessly he unmasks the lies and delusions that sustain Blanche, until her frail hold on reality is shockingly severed.

Damn Yankees

June 13th - June 29th  2014  
Music and Lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross
Book by George Abbott and Douglass Wallop
Based on the novel The Year The Yankees Lost The Pennant by Douglass Wallop
 
Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr. Applegate, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life he's left behind. Featuring songs such as "Heart”, "Who's Got the Pain?" and, "Whatever Lola Wants," a devilishly good time will be had by all!

The Seven Year Itch

August 8th - August 24th  2014  
By George Axelrod
 
Richard Sherman roams restlessly, bemoaning the fact that his wife of seven years, and their son, have just walked out on him. An accident at home nearly puts him out of his misery permanently. This jarring event has a strange effect on Richard. He now sees his marriage as wasted time and feels it necessary to exercise his libido as quickly as possible. Suddenly reborn, he invites the delectable doll who lives on the floor above down for an evening of temptation. A soul-struggle of heroic and hilarious proportions ensues.

The Boyfriend

October 10th - October 26th  2014  
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Sandy Wilson
 
Polly, an English heiress attending Mme. Dubonnet's Finishing School, falls in love with Tony, a delivery boy. Recalling her father's warning to beware fortune seekers, she posses as a working girl, unaware Tony is in fact the missing son of the wealthy Lord Brockhurst. Things get complicated with the unexpected arrival of Polly's parents and Lord and Lady Brockhurst. With its catchy tunes, winning sense of humor, and period dances (including the inevitable Charleston) The Boy Friend is a sparkling, tongue-in-cheek 1920's romp.

Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse

The heart warming story of a postulant who proved too high spirited for the religious life. She is dispatched to serve as a governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually capture the heart of the stern Captain. Perfect for the whole family, this show includes the classic songs, My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, and the inspiring Climb Every Mountain.
