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

This was another fabulous production at the GCT.
I love the intimate atmosphere and the theatre's attention to family entertainment. The lead performers were especially well chosen with strong voices and talent. The entire ensemble easily made it look like they were having fun. What a joy to watch.
This Cole Porter classic takes its inspiration from Shakespeare. Kiss Me, Kate recounts the backstage and onstage antics of two feuding romantic couples during a touring production of The Taming of the Shrew. Sparkling with 18 classic Cole Porter songs — including "Another Op'nin', Another Show," "Wunderbar" "So in Love," "Always True to You in My Fashion," "Too Darn Hot," among many others — Kiss Me, Kate epitomizes the Broadway musical comedy at its irresistible best.
Cole Porter's most successful musical, the original production of Kiss Me, Kate opened on Broadway at the New Century Theatre on December 30, 1948. It garnered five Tony Awards in 1949, the same number the revival claimed in 2000.
