The St. Ursula Academy Fine and Performing Arts Department is thrilled to announce its 2021 musical: Jerry's Girls. This revue is based on the works of famed composer and lyricist Jerry Herman, who is known for his work on Hello Dolly!, Mame, Mack and Mabel, and La Cage Aux Folles, among others.
Under the direction of Kirsten Hinshaw ’00, and with musical direction by Allison Krzyminski and choreography by Libby Crissman ’01, this year’s show was selected not only for its strong female characters and familiar songs, but also for its ability to adhere to safety and social-distancing protocols. It will have an all-female cast, no set, and minimal costumes. The performers will be double cast to offer more opportunities and to provide a safety net in case of illness.
Famous songs from this musical include “Put on Your Sunday Clothes” and “Hello, Dolly!” from Hello, Dolly!; “Wherever He Ain’t” from Mack and Mabel; “We Need a Little Christmas” and “Mame” from Mame; and “I Am What I Am” and “Best of Times” from La Cage aux Folles.
The show will be performed, with limited seating, at the Valentine Theatre in downtown Toledo on January 28-31. Ticket information will be provided soon.
