The La Salle High School Performing Arts Department is proud to announce the opening of “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” a musical comedy with a score by George and Ira Gershwin and book by Tony Award winning Joe Dipietro. The production features seniors Spencer Raines ’16, Sky Garcilasodelavega ’16, Emily Coolidge ’16, Lexi Dyer ’16, Emilio Garcia-Corona ’16, Emily Wright ’16, Amell Bishara ’16, Reilly Milton ’16, Emari McClellan ’16 as well as an additional 25 student performers and technicians.
Set in the 1920s, it is the rip-roaring tale of bootleggers, chorus girls, playboys and politicians gone wild in a “‘S Wonderful, ‘S Marvelous” Long Island mansion. Bursting with great songs, including “But Not For Me,” “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off,” “I’ve Got a Crush on You” and “Someone to Watch Over Me,” this witty production combines laughter, romance and high-stepping amusement for all.
“Nice Work If You Can Get It” is a new Gershwin musical about all the good things in life – music and laughter and falling in love. Every character in the show learns to find his or her joy, and hope audiences will do the same.
The lighthearted musical is directed by Dr. Jude Lucas and choreographed by Ashleigh Doede with musical direction by Christopher Rolontz.
“Nice Work If You Can Get It,” performance dates are March 5, 11, 12, 18, and 19th at 7:00 p.m. and March 6, 13, and March 20th at 4:00 p.m., March 12 and March 19 at 2:00 p.m. All performances are at Porticos Art Space 2033 E. Washington Blvd Pasadena.
