“Who’s Got Me“, a new musical, is a nod to the “golden age” Broadway musicals of the 1930s and 40s. A classic “play within a play”, the story concerns the Alexanders, a family of small-town cabaret performers, who attract the interest of famous but overworked Broadway producer Preston Fadham with their musical comedy, “Who’s Got Me?”, about a family of cabaret performers who attract the interest of a big-time Broadway producer. The Alexanders arrive in New York, expecting their dream show to be put on the stage, but they find Preston Fadham and his director Lindsay Walden actually call the shots. Darcy Fadham, Preston’s talented but untested daughter, is cast in the lead role, which frustrates the Alexanders. Did they do the right thing by bringing their family musical to the Broadway stage? Meanwhile, Darcy is trying to prove to everyone that she is worth her role, and her father, Preston, desperately, absolutely needs a break from work. Will Darcy be able to nail the lead? Will Preston ever get a break? Will the Alexanders’ musical go off without a hitch? Join us for this funny, heartwarming show full of laughter, a bit of romance, and tons of toe-tapping musical numbers that will leave you humming!
In a nod to the throwback feel of our musical, Mountain Community Theater is excited to announce this production will be held at the 1930s Art Deco Chris G Matthews Hall in the historic Veteran’s Memorial Building in downtown Santa Cruz. We are proud to be bringing you this fun-filled staged reading in a building that has been a vital part of downtown Santa Cruz’s art and music history for more than 50 years.
Make sure to stick around after the show for a special talk back every night with the playwright, directors and cast!
