Rockford, Ill. – The Rockford College Performing Arts department presents the romantic comedy "No, No Nanette.” Performance dates are April 26 – 29, 2012. Performance times are 7:30 p.m. Thursday – Saturday and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. All performances will take place at Clark Arts Center in Maddox Theatre, 5050 East State Street, Rockford. The Clark Arts Center is accessible.
"No, No, Nanette” is a lighthearted framework for the music of Vincent Youman. It tells the story of Jimmy Smith and all the trouble he gets into, and out of, on a summer weekend. Included in the score are perhaps two of the most famous show tunes ever written: Tea for Two and I Want to Be Happy. Standard numbers like Too Many Rings Around Rosie and You Can Dance with Any Girl at All accompany many other delightful songs. The whole experience is refreshing, silly and uplifting! The production is appropriate for audiences of all ages. The show is also the first college production to use the newly installed lighting and dimming system in Maddox Theatre.
"No, No Nanette” is based on the book by Otto Harbach and Frank Mandel.
Music by Vincent Youmans.
Lyrics by Irving Caesar and Otto Harbach
Directed by Associate Professor of Acting and Directing, Deborah Mogford
Musically Directed by Associate Professor of Music Timm Adams and choreographed by Cyndi Conley.
