Press notes for the Bay Street production read: "The stock market crashes, the country is in financial turmoil and a plucky theatre company, along with a sweet young girl newly arrived from Centerville USA, loses their home on opening night! But the show MUST go on! Dames At Sea is a rollicking valentine to the Hollywood musical of the '30s that's sure to delight theatregoers of all ages."
Shea Sullivan choreographs with musical direction by Rick Hip Flores. Designing the production are Tony Melfa (sound design), Howard Jones (scenic design), David Lawrence (costume design) and Charlie Morrison (lighting design).
Dames at Sea runs through Sept. 6. Tickets can be purchased by calling (631) 725-9500 or by visiting BayStreet.
