The Show

A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, CRAZY FOR YOU® tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include “I Got Rhythm,” “Naughty Baby,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Embraceable You,” “But Not for Me,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”

Vince Musgrave, Director

Vince Musgrave is excited to be directing Crazy for You, one of his favorite shows. He was last seen here at ASGT as Gomez in The Addams Family. His credits include national and international tours and shows, theme parks, and regional theaters. As a four-time WATCH Award nominee, his work as Choreographer, Director, and Actor have been seen on many of our local theater stages. Thanks to ASGT, this cast and crew for their trust with their talent, and Peter for his love and patience. Enjoy!

Rated PG. Parental discretion is always advised. Parents/guardians should determine beforehand whether the subject matter is appropriate.
