An unknown becomes a star before it required a reality show.
42nd Street is a big, bold tap-dancing musical, set in 1933, that celebrates the stuff dreams are made of. This is the story of hard work, talent, love and being in the right place at the right time. A celebration of Broadway and the people who live it, 42nd Street takes us on a journey with aspiring chorus girl Peggy Sawyer through musical hits like "You're Getting to Be a Habit with Me," "Dames," "I Know Now," "We're In the Money," "Lullaby of Broadway," "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" and "42nd Street."
*Please note: 42nd Street is a family-friendly production and appropriate for all ages (G).
*Please note: This production features strobe light effects and simulated gunfire.
