Hermantown Drama Club
Bringing the Art of Theatre to the Hermantown Community since 1942
November 21 & 23, 7pm
A hilarious and timely "new-fashioned" musical that follows the origins of the first all-American art form: popular music.
From debutante balls to Delancey Street, Hello! My Baby reboots the greatest hits of Irving Berlin, The Gershwins, Eubie Blake and more, weaving their updated classics and fresh, new tunes into a comic valentine set on the gritty sidewalks of New York at the turn of the last century. From Emmy Award winner, Cheri Steinkellner (Sister Act), comes a hysterical romantic farce that is fun for all ages.
Mickey McKee, teen King of the Song-Pluggers, dreams of writing the next crackerjack million-selling hit-song. Only he can't write a note... until he meets Betty Gold, a seamstress in a factory, who is bursting with music and moxie. She becomes Mickey's partner/sweetheart/arch-nemesis when she pulls on the trousers that she once sewed to be named the new King of the Pluggers. As they navigate first love, class-struggles, social reform, street-gangs, tap-shoes and ukuleles, Mickey, Betty and company make Tin Pan Alley sing and dance again, selling the songs that we're all still humming a hundred years later.
