The Bellingham Theatre Guild presents Crazy for You, with music and lyrics by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin and book by Ken Ludwig. Directed by Judith Owens-Lancaster, Crazy for You runs November 29 – December 15, 2019, at the Bellingham Theatre Guild near downtown Bellingham.
A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, Crazy for You® tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows—through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity—to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include “I Got Rhythm,” “Naughty Baby,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Embraceable You,” “But Not for Me,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
All performances are at the Bellingham Theatre Guild, 1600 H St., Bellingham. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2:00 p.m. on Sundays.
