Runaway Stage presents ’42nd Street’

SACRAMENTO — Come on along and listen to the lullaby of Broadway with Runaway Stage Productions as it presents the classic comedy musical “42nd Street.”

The production runs to Sunday, May 5 at 24th Street Theatre, located at the Sierra 2 Center.

Based on the classic 1933 movie musical of the same name, 42nd Street tells the story of naive young actress Peggy Sawyer who arrives to audition for the new Julian Marsh extravaganza, set to open on Broadway with aging leading lady Dorothy Brock. A classic backstage story, “42nd Street” is a delightful throwback that the entire family will enjoy.

The 1980 Broadway production won the Tony Award for Best Musical and became a long-running hit. The show was produced in London in 1984 (winning the Olivier Award for Best Musical), and its 2001 Broadway revival won the Tony for Best Revival.

RSP’s talented cast and crew include both well-known favorites and new talents. Award-winning Darryl Strohl (RSP’s Legally Blonde, Kiss Me Kate and Curtains) choreograph, Andrea St. Clair (Annie, Kiss Me Kate) plays Anytime Annie, Amy Jacques-Jones (White Christmas) is Peggy, and newcomer Timothy Stewart takes on the role of Billy.

“RSP has waited to do this show until the talent was ready, and boy is it ready,” RSP producing director Bob Baxter said. “The cast is unbelievable, the dancing is breathtaking. I am excited watching the rehearsals, and I know the audience will enjoy the show.”

Jeremy Bolt directs music, with vocal direction by Deann Golz. They lead the RSP resident orchestra with a score that is full of famous musical numbers, including “Young and Healthy,” “You’re Getting to be a Habit with Me,” “Dames,” “We’re in the Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” and the iconic, “42md Street.”

The production performs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $23 for seniors, $21 for students/SARTA and $18 for children 12 and under. Groups of 10 or more are $19 each.

Tickets can be purchased runawaystage.com — reservation convenience fees apply — or at the door.

For further information or questions call the box office at 916-207-1226. Free parking is available.
