The Jazz Age lives on in this light, romantic spoof of 1920s musical comedy. The setting is the French Riviera, where Polly, an English heiress attending finishing school (the role that turned Julie Andrews into an overnight sensation), falls in love with a delivery boy.
The Boy Friend is a tongue-in-cheek romp that sparkles with the live performance of the Rhythm Kings Orchestra, who perform regularly playing authentic music from the 1920s and 1930s.
Complimentary opening night wine reception on April 4, 6:30 p.m., for ticket holders is hosted by the Chamber of Commerce and Currents Restaurant at the Artist Faire Gallery 111 E. Tarpon Ave.
Principal cast includes Maisie, played by Brianne Filippelli; Polly Browne, played by Lauren Leech; Bobby Van Husen, played by Adam Willard; Tony, played by Michael McCoy; Lord Brockhurst, played by Bruce Miller; and Lady Brockhurst, played by Colleen St. Lawrence.
