Give My Regards to Broadway Comes to Ashmun Street Aug 21, 22

The Eastern Upper Peninsula Fine Arts Council of DeTour Village, Michigan is bringing their performance of Give My Regards to Broadway to the Soo Theatre stage August 21st at 7:30 pm and August 22nd at 2:00pm. The production is directed by Dave Rhinard and the music is directed by Lyle Juracek. Juracek, from the University of Iowa, was last summer's pianist for Chicago and will also be playing piano for this show.

A dynamic entertainer, playwright, producer, director, George M. Cohan practically invented American musical comedy. The Cohan hits--"Give My Regards to Broadway," "Mary," and "Grand Old Flag"--are timeless bits of Americana. This performance features all of these songs and more, all interwoven into a clever story by Shubert Fendrich about an struggling off-off Broadway theater company's attempts to raise money to put on a Cohan revival. An anonymous "Angel" puts up the money, but it gets complicated when a couple of comic mobsters show up with their hands out. Believe it or not, the show goes on, as evidenced by the final patriotic number of this show within a show.

The EUP Fine Arts Council’s show of this American classic includes James Bailey, Sherry Bailey, Emily Bosley, Paula Bosley, Janelle Dudeck, Kegan Fountain, Lyle Juracek, Lisa MacDonald, Allyson Mrozek, Dave Rhinard, Susie Rhinard, Jody Skinner, Heather Van Daele, and Bob Zahara.

EUPFAC’s Give My Regards to Broadway performance of this timeless show is great fun for the whole family and will be performed Saturday, August 21st at 7:30 pm and Sunday, August 22nd at 2:00 pm at the Soo Theatre. Tickets are $16.00 for adults, $14.00 for seniors, and $5 for students K-12, with proceeds benefiting both EUPFAC and the Soo Theatre Project. Please call (906) 632-1930 for more information or stop by 534 Ashmun Street, Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan to purchase tickets for the show.
