When it first premiered, the songs of Me and My Girl were so enchanting they managed to distract Londoners from the growing threat of war with Nazi Germany. More than seven decades later, this old-fashioned musical comedy still radiates dazzling amounts of charm. Non-stop tomfoolery unfolds as a Cockney lad attempts to inherit the title and fortune of an aristocratic ancestor, the Earl of Hereford. Many of the musical's energetic, lilting songs have become standards, including "The Lambeth Walk," "Leaning On a Lamppost" and "Me and My Girl." After acclaimed revivals in London and New York, Glendale Centre Theatre presents an all-new production of this musical theater treasure. Learn More

Under the helm of sought after Los Angeles theatre director Todd Nielsen, the Tony Award-winning musical 1776 will be presented at the Glendale Centre Theatre. With music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards, book by Peter Stone, and musical direction by the award-winning Steven Applegate, 1776 premiered on Broadway in 1969 and is based on the events leading up to the drafting and signing of the Declaration of Independence. John Adams, disliked by many in Congress, joins Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson to bring forward a resolution for independence that will eventually set America free from England's tyranny. Powerful performances and an impeccably crafted script make 1776 as relevant today as it was when first written. Add a memorable score, a spectacular cast of 25… and 1776 delivers a riveting evening of theatre filled with history, humor, heart and romance.
