Featuring the music of Neil Sedaka, the production is set in the Catskills at Esther’s Paradise Resort on Labor Day Weekend in 1960. Marge and her best friend Lois arrive on a vacation that was intended to be Marge’s honeymoon – until the groom left her at the altar. They of course get swept up in the atmosphere and Lois begins matchmaking with the club’s lead singer, the ambitious Del Demonico.
Sedaka has had a phenomenal career. He began as a songwriter in the 1950s creating a series of hits for Connie Frances and continued to ride a wave of success until the British invasion in 1964 with The Beatles. He also wrote for The Carpenters, The Monkees, The Captain and Tennille, Sinatra, Natalie Cole and more hits for himself.
Tickets are $24 for adults, $20 for seniors and $10 for students. There will be a special $8 discount for tickets for students Thursdays and Sundays.
