The overnight just wasn't enough for TADA!'s Youth Theater production of Sleepover as the show extends through April 8. The show that plays at their space in Manhattan opened March 16 and was originally schedule to run through April 1.
What girl doesn't remember packing up a knapsack with her PJ's, some fuzzy slippers, and heading over to her best friend's house for a slumber party? Now, TADA! presents a trip back to the good ol' nights as they present Sleepover.
Filled with the usual overnight shenanigans, Sleepover explores the girl-talk, late-night pranks, and pillow fights between Mia and nine of her closest friends. The party of course is girls-only, but who knows what the boys may be scheming?
With a book by Philip Freedman and music/lyrics by James Beloff, the production is directed by TADA! artistic director Janine Nina Trevens. Kara Martinez-Weilding carves out the choreography and Eric Rockwell handles musical/vocal direction. The design team includes Wendy Ponte (set), Shelley Norton (costume) and Jason Livingston (lighting).
For your invitation to the party, playing at the TADA! Theater, 120 West 28th Street, (between 6th and 7th Avenues), call (212) 627-1732. For further information on the show or the company and its programs, visit their website at www.tadatheater.com. — by Ernio Hernandez
