Press release from Red Bank Regional High School
The Red Bank Regional High School Theatre Company invites the public to “come and meet those dancing feet” when they present the iconic “backstage” musical 42nd Street, with 7 pm performances on Thursday, April 3, Friday, April 4, and Saturday, April 5. There will also be a special matinee performance on Sunday, April 6 at 3 pm.
In the Broadway hit adapted from the Depression-era movie musical of the same name (and incorporating songs from other vintage Busby Berkeley films of that era), the dictatorial director Julian March will be portrayed by Justin Giegerich of Brielle. Eliana Swartz of Little Silver portrays Broadway newcomer Peggy Sawyer, and RBR dance major Bobby Davis of Shrewsbury is a show-stomping Billy Lawlor, with Dana Brown of Red Bank as the veteran Broadway star Dorothy Brock. The RBR chorus and dancers round out a cast of three dozen performers in a high-energy production of the popular David Merrick staging, featuring original choreography by Gower Champion.
Tickets ($15 for adults; $10 for students and senior citizens) may be purchased at the door or reserved ahead for large groups by calling (732)842-8000, ext. 217. Click READ MORE for a full cast listing.
