The dangers of workplace romances are explored to both comic and dramatic effect in this revival of the 1954 Tony Award-winning musical. At the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory, sparks fly between Sid Sorokin, the new factory superintendent, and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a pay increase, setting off a conflict between management and labor, not to mention a battle of the sexes. A true slice-of-'50s-era-life, the still-resonant storyline also boasts a timeless jazzy score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, featuring songs like "Steam Heat," "Hey There" and "Hernando's Hideaway." This ever-popular show won the Tony for Best Revival when it appeared on Broadway in 2006, starring Harry Connick, Jr. Learn More

Let me start by saying that this production of HSM was a presentation from a kids musical theater group, and it would not be fair to review them with the same critical points as the many professional shows out there.
That said, the production appeared to be primarily staffed by kids with an affiliation to the Keener Music Studio. The main characters seemed to be high school and middle school aged, with some little kids mixed in where possible.
It was obvious that there was a great deal of effort put into the show with an abundance of choreography, and above average props for a show of this type.
Although the singing and acting was what you would expect from kids who are learning and growing, I applaud them for doing something rewarding and worthwhile with their time.
The skills they are learning from participating in a show like this will benefit them for the rest of their lives. Rock on Kids!

It was nice to see a youth company. Many young children, elementary age, also performed throughout aside from the older teenagers. However, I cringed a bit with the singing of the leads. I get that they are amateurs but was not expecting it. I...continued
The captain of the East High basketball team and the key member of the academic club shock the student body by teaming up to audition for an upcoming school musical. Troy is best known as the player who keeps the East High basketball team on the scoreboard. Of course, life isn’t always about athletics and as Troy slam-dunks on the boards, beautiful and brainy Gabriella is raising the reputation of East High as the key member of the school’s successful academic team. Despite their outgoing natures, no one would ever peg Troy and Gabriella as theater types. When word gets out that this popular pair has secretly chosen to reach for the stars and try their luck on the stage, the students of East High are about to learn an important lesson in teamwork while gearing up for a musical performance that will have their audience dancing in the aisles.
