Talent Machine Co. to present ‘42nd Street’ in Annapolis
ANNAPOLIS — This July, the Talent Machine Company will present “42nd Street” at St. John’s College Key Auditorium in Annapolis.
One of show business’s most beloved tales, “42nd Street” tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway.
Peggy arrives to New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pa., armed with her tap shoes and big dreams. Peggy’s talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh, who gives her a spot in the chorus of “Pretty Lady,” his newest show.
“Pretty Lady” stars Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva, who takes an instant dislike to the new girl in the cast. When Dorothy is injured during the show’s previews, “Pretty” Lady looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found — someone like Peggy Sawyer.
“42nd Street” is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theater standard, and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.
The production will be performed by a cast of 42 children from all over the region, ages 7 to 14. The show will run July 13 to 15 and July 19 to 22. Evening and matinee show times are available. Tickets are $15, and available online at www.talentmachine.com, at the door or by emailing email@example.com.
