NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. — The students of North Fort Myers High School will come together to perform the musical 42nd Street on March 25th, 26th, and 27th.
The musical was shut down last year only weeks before opening night.
The school has had to replace over half of the cast, due to students graduating, switch roles, and re-do the show as a whole.
The show is set in the 1930s, during the height of the Great Depression, this toe-tapping musical will have you dancing in your seats and singing all the way home.
The musical tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented ingenue who dreams of making it big on Broadway by starring in a production of the newest Julian Marsh show: Pretty Lady. Though she arrives late to the audition, the casted juvenile lead Billy takes a liking to her and is willing to do what he can to get her into the show. When Julian Marsh finds that he needs an extra choir girl, Peggy finally gets to live her dream out on a Broadway stage, until an accident happens that leaves the cast of Pretty Lady in dire need of a lead, and Peggy must step up to the challenge of leading this show out of the Depression.
42nd Street will play on March 25-27th at 7:00 pm and March 28th at 2:00 pm.
Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults.
Everyone will be required to wear a mask, including performers.
The audience must purchase tickets online, through GoFan, and will be pre-seating in seats 6’ apart.
