See Lost Treasure Call Me Madam this weekend
Lakewood Theatre Company will present Call Me Madam this Friday and Saturday as part of its Lost Treasures Collection series. Call Me Madam is a musical with music and lyrics by Irving Berlin and book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. Ron Daum directs with musical direction by Yvette Starkey.
Performances begin at 7 p.m. The show is presented with script in hand, with minimal staging; no sets, no props.
Tickets are $20 for all seats. Food, wine and other beverages are available for purchase before and during the show, which is presented cabaret style in the Side Door Theatre.
The story is about Ambassador Sally Adams, with slim credentials, is sent off to administer in the tiny duchy of Lichtenburg. Her down to earth and undiplomatic manner surprises and charms the local gentry, especially the handsome Prime Minister.
Love is threatened by the stuffy opposition, who eventually succeed in wrangling Sallys recall, but not before all has resolved happily for the lovers.
The cast includes Annie Kaiser, Bruce Blanchard, Alan Anderson, Jennifer Davies, Megan Misslin and Adam Elliot Davis.
