Peggy Sawyer arrives in New York City from Allenstown, PA with hopes of becoming a  Broadway star. Facing adversity from all directions, the young but talented performer  learns about show business and discovers which relationships are most important in  life.

This dance-heavy 1980 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical is based on the novel by  Bradford Ropes and the 1933 Academy Award-winning musical film. Our deconstructed  version will investigate gender norms and other contemporary issues.
