Harlequin Productions presents The Stardust Christmas Dazzle by Harlowe Reed from November 27-December 31, 2015, at the State Theater in downtown Olympia. Tickets to this musical comedy for all ages are available at 360-786-0151 or harlequinproductions.org.
This production kicks off Harlequin’s 25th anniversary season. It is the 20th installment of the company’s highly popular tradition of original musicals set in the Stardust Club in Manhattan, celebrating the spirit of the season with song, dance, and laughs.
It’s December 1959 and the Stardust gang is frantically rehearsing for a rapidly approaching benefit performance.
Things get more complicated when a snobbish Englishman shows up claiming to be the 8th Earl of Fentonshire, and the father of their newest baritone, Desmond Manderson. Desmond has no interest in returning to England as his father demands. To make their benefit date, the gang draws Lord Manderson into their show while family secrets unfold and a valuable family artifact hangs in the balance. Featuring toe-tapping music and dance from the golden age of rock’n’roll.
