Featuring the rousing Broadway tunes of songmasters John Kander and Fred Ebb, (Chicago, Cabaret, New York, New York), Stage Right Productions and 2nd Street Theater presents The World Goes ‘Round from February 28 through March 9. Story by Jeff Spry
Directed by Nancy Scher with musical direction by Scott Michaelsen, this sparkling theatrical gem is filled with humor, romance, drama and nonstop melody, a thrilling celebration of life and the indomitable fighting spirit that keeps us all going.
Typically performed as a comprehensive all-star revue, this revised 2nd Street Theater adaptation is now a fully staged play, featuring a galaxy of familiar faces including Rachel Deegan, Susan Benson, Mallory DaCosta, Scott Schultz and Chris Gallagher, as well as newcomer to Bend and 2nd Street Theater, Tess Anderson.
“We have a wonderful ‘who’s who’ cast made up of some of Bend’s most talented actor/singers,” said 2nd Street Theater’s Managing Director, Sandy Klein. “World Goes ‘Round is such a treat for the eyes and ears. Nancy has taken a musical revue written by the Kander and Ebb duo who brought you hits like Cabaret and Chicago, and transformed it into a sweet show about love and life. The audience gets to “hang out” at the Club and watch these regulars grow and change over time. It includes many familiar Kander & Ebb smash hits like All That Jazz, Mr. Cellophane, and Cabaret, along with some less familiar, but equally as engaging numbers. You can’t help but get caught up in their stories, told through some really beautiful music!”
There will be an opening night champagne reception on February 28 from 6:30 to 7:30pm. The show runs for seven performances: February 28, March 1, 6, 7 & 8 at 7:30pm, with two Sunday matinees on March 2 & 9 at 3pm. Tickets are $22 adult, $19 student/seniors. The 2nd Street Theater is located at 220 NE Lafayette Avenue in Bend.
