The Marion Art Center is now accepting reservations for its summer musical: “I Love You You’re Perfect, Now Change!” This is an augmented version of last summer’s hit musical brought back by popular demand. If you missed it last summer, now’s your chance! The Show opens on Friday, July 27 with performances on Saturday, July 28, Thursday, August 2, Friday, August 3 and Saturday, August 4. All shows are at 7:30 pm.
With book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music by Jimmy Roberts this revue style musical is a satirical serenade to the dating world. During a series of fun-filled and humorous vignettes interspersed with songs, all the aspects of love and relationships are explored. The dancing, acting, and singing will inspire audiences to reflect, laugh and perhaps cry a bit, but overall this show is a feel good evening of fun! The show can be upbeat as in “He Called Me” but can be quite sentimental as in “I Will Be Loved Tonight,” or sarcastic as in “Always a Bridesmaid, Never a Bride”.
The show features the Marion Art Center Players: Sheila Furtado, Mary and Brad Cardwell, Nicole Schaub, Ric and Kim Teves, and Holly and John Ashley. Michael Amaral is directing, doing scenic design, stage direction, and selected choreography. The stellar cast will be under the musical direction of the talented Nancy Sparklin.
Tickets are $12.50 for Marion Art Center members and $15 for general admission. Tables are available for reserved parties of four or more. Reservations are highly recommended. Call 508-748-1266.
