Centerstage Theatre presents its final show of the 2017-18 season, “The Pajama Game,” a golden age musical that transports the audience to the 1950s factory lifestyle through catchy songs, big dance numbers and more.
The musical is based on the novel “7 ½ cents” by Richard Bissell that showcases the working classes’ struggles and triumphs. This fast-paced musical turns the burners up when a factory romance is sparked between the steamy new superintendent Sid Sorokin (Eric Dobson) and firecracker head of the grievance committee, Babe Williams (Taylor Davis). The story gets even hotter when the factory workers strike in the hopes to get their raise of 7 ½ cents. The show includes musical numbers such as “I’m Not at All in Love,” “Hey There,” “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.”
The show opens May 18 and runs through June 3 at the following times: 8 p.m. May 18-19; 2 p.m. May 20; 8 p.m. May 24-25; 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. May 26; 2 p.m. May 27; 8 p.m. May 31; 8 p.m. June 1; 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. June 2; and 2 p.m. June 3.
