Published DateMEREDITH — The Interlakes Summer Theatre, a professional summer stock theatre company, in residence at the air-conditioned Interlakes Community Auditorium at the Inter-Lakes High School, will open its 2013 season with “Ain’t Misbehavin”.
The musical is a tribute to the black musicians of the 1920s and '30s who were part of the Harlem Renaissance, an era of growing creativity, cultural awareness, and ethnic pride, and takes its title from the 1929 Waller song "Ain't Misbehavin'".
It was a time when Manhattan nightclubs like the Cotton Club and the Savoy Ballroom were the playgrounds of high society and Lenox Avenue dives were filled with piano players banging out the new beat known as swing. Five performers present an evening of rowdy, raunchy, and humorous songs that encapsulate the various moods of the era and reflect Waller's view of life as a journey meant for pleasure and play.
The show runs for one week only, June 25-June 30, Tuesday to Saturday at 7:30 p.m., Sunday at 7 p.m, with matinees on Wednesday and Thursday at 2 p.m.
Adult tickets are $31, Senior tickets $27, Students $22. If purchased in advance there is a $1discount.
