PHS to present ‘On the Town” New York City musical

Plymouth High School will present “On the Town” - featuring the songs “New York New York,” “Lonely Town” and “I Can Cook Too” - as its spring musical March 2-5.

This jazzy and energetic musical takes place in New York City and tells the story of three sailors with a 24-hour leave in The Big Apple. Each is determined to see all the sights but, more importantly, find romance. Ozzie wants to land a date with a Manhattan beauty, Chip hunts for that special woman, and Gabey wants to find his one true mate - Miss Turnstiles.

Friendship, determination, and pure adrenaline assist the sailors in making their 24 hours worthwhile. Developed by Leonard Bernstein and Jerome Robbins, the show first opened on Broadway in 1944, with three revivals since, the most recent in 2014.

Performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 2 through Saturday, March 4, with a matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 5 in the school auditorium, 125 Highland Ave. Tickets cost $9 and are on sale in the PHS office.

Arbuckle Floral will sell individual flowers and bouquets before the musical performances for family and friends to present to performers. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the PHS Fine Arts Boosters.

The PHS show is directed by Amanda Smith and Herb Stoltenberg, with choreography by Lori Schmidt, pit orchestra direction by Jason Sebranek, costumes by Eileen Brooks and PHS student Delaney Scudella, and technical direction by Gary Kaiser.
