The award-winning Bordentown Regional High School Theatre is set to present the fun-filled musical “The Pajama Game” on Feb. 26, 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m.
Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7 ½ cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.
The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 Tony Award for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, this musical includes songs such as “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.”
The Bordentown production is set to star seniors Dakota Torres (Babe Williams), Jordan Browne (Sid Sorokin), Haley Szenczi (Mabel), Breanna Volz (Mae) and Ivan Trancon (Prez); and juniors Cynthia Reynolds (Gladys), Liam McCormack (Hines), and Scott Price (Hasler). The singing and dancing ensemble of The Pajama Game features Bordentown Regional High School students of all four grade levels, who play a variety of featured roles and dance their way through this musical theatre classic.
Prior to the Friday evening performance, the BRHS Theatre Club Parent Boosters will be sponsoring a Dinner and a Show in the school cafeteria. The $20 ticket includes salad, beverage, a pasta dinner, and dessert, as well a ticket and reserved seating to that evening’s performance. Tickets to this event must be purchased in advance at www.seatyourself.biz/brhs
