This Young Performers' Edition is a one-hour adaptation of 42ND STREET, specially tailored for elementary and middle school-aged actors. The materials have been prepared to help your school or organization mount the best possible production and to give your young cast and crew an exciting and rewarding experience.
The ultimate show-biz musical, 42ND STREET is a celebration of Broadway, Times Square, and the people who make the magic of musical theatre. Aspiring chorus girl Peggy Sawyer comes to the big city from Allentown PA, and soon lands her first big job in the ensemble of a glitzy new Broadway show. But just before opening night, the leading lady breaks her ankle. Will Peggy be able to step in and become a star? The score is chock-full of Broadway standards, including Go Into Your Dance, We're In the Money, Lullaby of Broadway, Shuffle Off to Buffalo and Forty-Second Street.
42ND STREET opened on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theatre on August 25, 1980, starring Wanda Richert, Jerry Orbach, and Tammy Grimes. The production eventually moved to the Majestic and St. James Theatres, ultimately running for 3,486 performances.
In 2001, the first Broadway revival of 42ND STREET ran for 1,534 performance at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts, starring Kate Levering, Michael Crumpsty, and Christine Ebersole.
