Lakewood Theatre presents Noel Coward's 'Sail Away'

Lakewood Theatre Company’s Lost Treasures Collection Series ends its sixth season April 15-16 with Noel Coward’s “Sail Away.”

The production, with stage direction by Ron Daum and musical direction by Matt Insley, will be performed for three shows on two dates only: 7 p.m. on Friday, April 15, and Saturday, April 16, with a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. The show is presented script-in-hand, with minimal staging. No sets, no props and free from the usual trappings of a fully staged production.

The Lost Treasures Collection is a series of rarely performed musical gems presented in concert/cabaret version on Lakewood Theatre Company’s Side Door Stage. Food, wine and other beverages will be available for purchase before and during the show.

“Sail Away” is set almost entirely on an ocean liner heading from New York to Europe. It centers on Mimi Paragon (Adair Chappell), a middle-age divorcée who works as a hostess on the ship. She finds romance with the much younger Johnny Van Mier (Alexander Birch Elliot), who is controlled by his mother, Evelyn Van Mier (Paige Jones).

Also onboard is Barnaby Slade (Collin Carver), a wide-eyed young man seeking romance on the high seas. He finds it with Nancy Foyle (Audrey Sackett), who is an assistant to eccentric author Elinor Spencer-Bollard (Joan Freed). All is observed by Joe (Peter Schyuler) the Purser.

Ticket prices are $20 for all seats. Contact the Lakewood Theatre box office at 503-635-3901 or order online at http://www.lakewood-center.org
