Season show revision

Due to a conflict in licensing rights, Joplin Little Theatre is unable to
present A Christmas Story as planned.  We are replacing this production with
an equally popular Christmas play, a family-friendly comedy,
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.
Production dates remain the same – December 10-14, 2014.

As always, Joplin Little Theatre continues to strive to bring you
quality, live performances.  Occasionally adjustments need to be made,
but in the tradition of theatre THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
We will continue to celebrate our upcoming
75th Anniversary Season.

THE BOY FRIEND
A musical comedy by Sandy Wilson
Directed by Carolyn McGowan

July 30-Aug 3, 2014

     Set against the backdrop of the French Riviera, this romantic spoof of 1920′s musical comedies tells the story of English heiress, Polly, who is longing for only one thing:  a boyfriend.  Polly’s father, convinced any boy who isn’t wealthy will court Polly strictly for her money, forbids her to engage any potential suitors.  Honoring his wishes, Polly explains to Tony, the messenger boy with whom she’s fallen in love, that she is no rich girl.  This is just the tip of the mistaken identity iceberg as love proceeds to charmingly find its way through nearly every member of the cast and bring them all to a happy ending.
This production is an essential Golden Age musical  Filled to the brim with tongue-in-cheek moments that both parents and grandparents will find hysterical.  With a catchy score, dance numbers, comedy and mix-ups, this cast of almost 40 will entertain you.  This show is suitable for all ages.


Ticket prices for musicals:  Adults $15; Seniors/Students $13;
Children 12 and under $6
