Ta­lent Ma­chine Co. to present ‘42nd Street’ in An­napo­lis

Record Observer - - Arts & Entertainment -

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 tm­cy­outh@hot­mail.com.

About 75 fourth-graders from the Sudlersville El­e­men­tary School vis­ited the Queen Anne’s Mu­seum of East­ern Shore Life on June 5. Shown here are a group of those stu­dents who were fas­ci­nated by an an­tique dial tele­phone from the 1950s.
