A feel-good musical comedy that’s fun for the whole family!
“Welcome to the joyous, hilarious and heartwarming world of DAMES AT SEA, a charming, small musical that pays homage to the wonderful Busby Berkeley Movie Musicals of the 1930’s–normally performed with a ‘cast of thousands.’”
“Dames at Sea is based on such classic films as 42nd Street, The Gold Diggers of 1933, and Footlight Parade–all of which will be shown here as part of the Wednesday Night Film Series.”
“Created and set in the trying and stressful time of The Great Depression of the 1930’s, these films and this show reflect the spirit of America. In the 1930’s, movie audiences were desperate for escape. As they stood on breadlines and dealt with such incredible stress in their daily lives, audiences often scraped together a nickel and escaped their troubles by staying inside darkened movie theaters where they could forget their troubles, and reboot their spirit. They needed this sense of optimism, and the promise of success these films would provide. A familiar promise of the American Dream which would be realized if one had enough ingenuity, and put in enough hard work to make it so.” – Director, Joshua Finkel
