BELLINGHAM — The Bellingham Theatre Guild presents “Crazy For You,” running Nov. 29 through Dec. 15, at the guild playhouse, 1600 H St.
The music and lyrics are by George and Ira Gershwin, based on the book by Ken Ludwig. This stage production is directed by Judith Owens-Lancaster.
A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, “Crazy For You” tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. There Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows — through cunning, razzmatazz and a hilarious case of mistaken identity — to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre.
Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include “I Got Rhythm,” “Naughty Baby,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “Embraceable You,” “But Not For Me,” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays.
Tickets are $14 for seniors and students, $16 for adults, and $8 for children 12 and younger. Tickets are available online at www.bellinghamtheatreguild.com or at the BTG ticket office (phone 360-733-1811) from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and also two hours before the start of each performance.
