If you like reminiscing with songs of classic Broadway musicals, you’re going to love “Marquee Memories” on the Orchard Creek Ballroom stage Nov. 15, 16 and 17. Your own memories will come rushing back as you’re treated to tunes such as Cole Porter’s “Wunderbar” from “Kiss Me Kate,” “Small World” from Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim’s “Gypsy,” and the rousing “Everything’s Coming up Roses” from the same show.
Writer/director Paul Krow is pleased to offer a sprightly medley of songs from five mid-20th century award-winning Broadway musicals in this Lincoln Hills original musical, performed by Lincoln Hills Players members.
“Marquee Memories” has a song for everyone. Enjoy Irving Berlin’s funny classic “Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better” from “Annie Get Your Gun.” For bittersweet romance, there’s “The Party’s Over” from “Bells Are Ringing” and for toe-tapping inspiration, “There’s No Business Like Show Business.”
Other songs include the funny “Brush up Your Shakespeare,” in which two New York gangsters provide unlikely tips on how to woo a damsel with Shakespearean poetry; and “A Secretary Is Not a Toy.” The shop opens with singers and dancers belting out the lively show biz anthem, “Another Opening, Another Show” from “Kiss Me Kate.”
Four shows are from Nov. 15 to 17 in the Orchard Creek Ballroom in Lincoln. Reserved seats are $20 and $15 general for Lincoln Hills residents; and $23 reserved and $18 general for nonresidents. Tickets are available in Orchard Creek and Kilaga Springs lodges or online for Lincoln Hills residents at sclhresidents.com.
