M&M Stage Productions is proud to announce auditions for

CRAZY FOR YOU

  • DIRECTOR: Mike DiIorio
  • MUSICAL DIRECTOR: Pam Sharples
  • CHOREOGRPAHER: Laura Ghaffoor

 

ABOUT THE SHOW:

This rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theater. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter, who takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly’s heart and save the theater. Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include “I Got Rhythm,” “Naughty Baby,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Embraceable You,” “But Not for Me,”  “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
