    Featuring much loved Gershwin songs, this fabulous show features a hilarious script, colourful characters and more dance numbers than you can shake a stick at!

    Crazy For You.

    Hosted by Banbury Operatic Society.

    Over the last couple of shows Banbury Operatic Society (BOS) has taken audiences to Australia and Vienna, with very contrasting styles. In Crazy for You, BOS is off to the American West – with a Follies twist.

    Featuring much loved Gershwin songs, this fabulous show features a hilarious script, colourful characters and more dance numbers than you can shake a stick at!

    The production team of Charlotte Boardman Director and Choreographer, David Hornsby Associate Director, Nick Perry Musical Director, and Will Dyson Production Manager welcome you to a fresh, modern spin on this Gershwin musical comedy.

    Nick Perrys take on this show is:

    ‘With the close harmony work, and fun lyrics, its a great show. We have a barber shop effect in the Cowboy Trio, and numbers that range from the beautiful ballad Someone to watch over me to the sparkling I got rhythm. Its classic Gershwin, who could ask for anything more?

    Crazy for You, with lyrics by Ira Gershwin and music by George Gershwin, won the 1992 Tony Award (Broadway), 1993 Olivier Award (London) and 1994 Dora Award (Toronto) for Best Musical.

    The show is a classic 1930s tale of a boy, a girl and a theatre in need of salvation.

    While working as a banker for his over-bearing mother Lottie, Bobby Child sneaks off to audition for Zanglers Follies, the most popular show in New York. He fails to impress, landing on Zanglers foot during his audition dance.

    Dejected, he agrees to investigate a customer who has defaulted on a mortgage in hot, quiet Deadrock, Nevada, a gold mining town thats seen better days!

    In Deadrock, Everett Baker receives a letter from New York warning of foreclosure on the Gaiety Theatre. His daughter, Polly, vows to get even with Bobby Child, while Lank Hawkins, saloon proprietor, tries to convince Everett to let him buy the theatre before the bank takes it. Everett refuses.

    Bobby falls in love with Polly at first sight, not realising who she is, but Lank isn't pleased to see a rival for her affections. Bobby is in a bind. If he forecloses on the theatre, hell lose the girl of his dreams. He comes up with a plan put on a show to pay off the mortgage. Polly agrees until she finds out who he is and suspects a trick. Theyre both heartbroken, but Bobby decides to put on the show anyway, disguised as Zangler.

    Bobby invites the Follies Girls (on vacation) to help stage a spectacular show and when Deadrock’s men see the girls, the sleepy town livens up. Lank is against the show and threatens to shoot Bobby. And to make matters worse, Bobby’s financee arrives, threatening to expose his charade. Meanwhile Polly has fallen in love with Bobby's impersonation of Zangler.

    On opening night, the only people to arrive at the show are two British tourists writing a guidebook on the American West. What starts out as a disappointment changes into the realisation that the show has now awoken the town. As the townsfolk celebrate with I Got Rhythm, the real Zangler stumbles unnoticed into town ...

    Will Bobby get into showbiz? Will he get his girl? Will the show go ahead? Will the theatre be saved? To find out, youll have to come and see the show.
