Babes in Arms

Thursday-Saturday, November 20-22, 2014; 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, November 23, 2014; 2:00 p.m.

Rockford University, Maddox Theatre, Clark Arts Center, 5050 E. State St., Rockford, IL 61108
The quintessential "Hey kids, let’s put on a show!” musical boasts one of the greatest scores ever written. Songs include My Funny Valentine, Where or When, I Wish I Were in Love Again, The Lady is a Tramp and Johnny One-Note. Set in a summer stock theatre, the plot concerns a group of young apprentices and their conviction to mount the original revue they have created while dodging the underhanded attempts of the surly theatre owner to squash their attempts at every turn. Further complications are provided by the overbearing stage mother of an ex-child star and the inflated ego of a hack Southern playwright. But of course the show must go on, and so it does in a resolution of comeuppance, reconciliation and romance.

Single ticket admission is $12 for adults, $9 for seniors age 55 and up and for students. Group rates are available. For tickets or information, please call the Box Office at 815-226-4100 or visit rockford.edu. Dates and locations are subject to change.
