This year, Intermediate AYMT are performing the timeless classic “Crazy for You” which will transport you to the states to the 1930’s that taps into that uniquely-American “Lets put on a show” spirit.
A well-to-do young New Yorker, Bobby Child, is sent by his mother to a small town in Nevada to close down the local theatre. Soon Bobby falls in love with Polly, daughter of the theatre owner, and in order to save the theatre, he dreams up the idea to put on a show to raise money for the theatre. Mixed with comedy and fantastic musical numbers including “I’ve Got Rhythm”, “Someone to watch Over me” and “Embraceable”, this is a high energy musical that will appeal to all ages.
