2008 ECU/Loessin Summer Theatre at the Turnage Theater in Washington starts with The Boy Friend
The Jazz Age lives on in this light, romantic spoof of 1920's musical comedy.
The setting is – where else? – the French Riviera. Polly, an English heiress attending Mme. Dubonnet's Finishing School, falls in love with Tony, a delivery boy. Recalling her father's warning to beware fortune seekers, she posses as a working girl, unaware Tony is in fact the missing son of the wealthy Lord Brockhurst. Things get complicated with the unexpected arrival in Nice of Polly's parents and Lord and Lady Brockhurst – but not to worry, a happy ending is in store for all.
Performances are June 26, 27, 28 and July 1, 2, 3 at 8pm; a special July 4th show at 7pm; and 2pm matinees on 28, 29, and July 5
