ELIZABETHTOWN -The Elizabethtown Social Center is working on a show within the show.
Elizabethtown-Lewis students and community members have come together for the annual Social Center musical, which will be "42nd Street," a show based on a 1930s movie that details the production of a show from auditions to curtain.
"Everything has gone very well," Susan Forney Hughes, director, said. "You always get to that point where you don't know if it's going to happen, and then you know it will. We are at the point where we know it is going to happen. We have a great cast that is very talented from sixth-grade students through adults."
The show will run starting on Thursday, April 7, at 7 p.m., with tickets for the preview performance costing $5 for adults and $2 for students.
There will be 7 p.m. performances on Friday and Saturday, April 8 and 9, with tickets costing $8 for adults and $3 for students, with a family rate of $20, which will also be the price for the 3 p.m. performance on Sunday, April 10.
The show is choreographed by Karin DeMuro and musical accompaniment by Kerry Mero, Hans Himelein, Warren Gallic and Brad Egglefield.
The players are looking forward to the curtain.
"It has been pretty cool," senior Paul Burdo, who plays Julian Marsh, said. "We have had a great time working on it."
"It's really fun," senior Scott Drew, who plays Mac the Stage Manager, said. "It's great working with Susan and it is an opportunity to meet and work with new people."
"It has been a lot of work but it is all well worth it," Zach Denton, who plays Billy Lawlor, said. "There is a lot of dancing, which is not my forte, but it has been a lot of fun learning."
Tickets are available at the door or during open hours at the Elizabethtown Social Center.
