Saddleback Civic Light Opera Season Finale: Dames at Sea

Posted by CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – Saddleback Civic Light Opera closes on June 24th with an audience-pleaser, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and another song and dance musical,   Dames at Sea - book and lyrics by George Haimsohn and Robin Miller and music by Jim Wise, is an affectionate spoof of the grand and glorious Busby Berkeley movie musicals of the 1930s. 

Performances are at the McKinney Theatre on July 13th through the 29th.  Directed and choreographed by K. C. Gussler and musically directed by Jimmy Vann, this all song-and-dance musical will delight audience members of all ages.   

Small-town girl Ruby arrives in the Big Apple with only her tap shoes, a song in her heart, and a burning desire to become a Broadway star. She falls in love with Dick, a sailor who just happens to be a songwriter. They can sing a lovely duet – but can they save a Broadway musical when calamity strikes?  This old-fashioned tap extravaganza will charm and delight with catchy tunes like Broadway Baby, Choo-Choo Honeymoon, The Sailor of My Dreams and Dames at Sea.
