SCUGOG: From the Producers of this season’s smash-hit musical, MAMMA MIA, at Town Hall 1873. Scugog Choral Society (SCS) Musicals is thrilled to present Dynamite Dames, the original musical by local playwrights Liz Auston and Conrad Boyce, originally performed in 2004, and back by audience request.
With over 40 Broadway musicals represented through characters and well-known musical numbers, with a revue-style score at its heart, Dynamite Dames celebrates the spirit of women. For years, Jane has lovingly dedicated herself to the wants and needs of a wonderful husband and two nearly-grown kids. A promising performer in a past-life, her only singing engagements in recent years were when the kids were little, her dramatic repertoire resting solidly with “Good Night Moon”. When a local theatre troupe shockingly earns first-dibs at staging a huge Broadway mega-hit musical (shades of SCS earning first rights to Mamma Mia!), Jane musters the courage to squelch self-doubt and audition for the show. But Jane is not alone in wanting to shake free of her own familiar role, as she is joined by a room full of over-qualified, talented women who appear to share in a similar dream.
GALA Night!
