On Broadway
Placeholder Image

George M. Cohen’s classic musical "Give My Regards to Broadway" will be staged by the Eastside High School Chorus Show Choir at 7 p.m. Thursday and Saturday and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday in the school auditorium.

In the musical, Dick Foster (Samuel Glanton) is opening a Broadway show but is having problems with both money and his leading lady. Enter Mary Collins (Katelyn Trust), an aspiring actress, and "Legs" Ruby, a bookie who is on the run from the mob. Just as all appears lost, a financial angel appears on the scene and Mary gets her chance at stardom.

The play is filled with fascinating character roles, including Eddie (Tyler Moon) the pianist, Betty (Mary Lathem) the Virginia belle in the chorus, along with chorus girls, gangsters and other characters.

Songs include "Give My Regards to Broadway," "You’re A Grand Old Flag" and "Mary’s A Grand Old Name."

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students at the door. Admission for senior citizens on Sunday is $4.
