The Pajama Game

Auditions: Monday and Tuesday December 16/17 at 7:00pm
Rehearsals begin: January 6th, 2014 at 6:30pm
Performances: February 28, March 1-2, 7-9, 14-15, 2014
Directed by: Michele and Dan Mayes

The dangers of a workplace romance are explored to hysterical effect in this romantic comedy. Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7 and a half cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well. 

Bright and brassy, this unconventional, fast-paced Broadway favorite is every bit the embodiment of legendary director George Abbot at his very best. The energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross is brimming with songs and dances, which have become popular and musical theatre standards (among them "Hey There," "Steam Heat" and "Hernando's Hideaway") and features plenty of splashy, fun production numbers, including a comic "dream ballet." For solid, classic musical comedy, it's hard to beat The Pajama Game!
