STAGE DOOR THEATRE PRESENTS
“BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO”
FEATURING THE MUSIC OF NEIL SEDAKA
Stage Door Theatre’s final production“Breaking Up Is Hard To Do,” in their long venue on Sample Road, will open in Theatre 1 on July 6, 2018 and run through August 12, 2018. The Stage Door’s next production, La Cage Aux Folles, will open in their new home at the Lauderhill performing Arts Center on August 31, 2018
This comic story is that of Marge and Lois who arrive at “Esther’s Paradise Resort Labor Day Weekend 1960 on a holiday that was intended to be Marge’s honeymoon- until the groom left her at the alter. It is set to the music of pop icon Neil Sedaka, and the score showcases eighteen Sedaka classics, including: "Where The Boys Are,” “Sweet Sixteen,” “Calendar Girl,” “Love Will Keep Us Together,” and of course, the chart-topping title song “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do.” Mr. Sedaka seems to have a song for every emotion.
Lois attempts to console Marge by setting her up with the resort’s handsome, self-obsessed singer Del Delmonaco, but her plans backfire when Del mistakenly assumes that Marge’s father can further his ambitions to become the next teen heartthrob on American Bandstand.
Gazing forlornly at Marge from the Wings is geekish cabana boy Gabe. In the meantime, when he isn’t entertaining guests, with his comical Borsht Belt Shtick, house comedian Harvey is secretly carrying a torch for widowed resort owner Ester, who is more preoccupied with keeping her hotel opened.
The show’s cast consists of Molly Shippy, Leigh Green, Trenton Bainbridge, Bruno Faria, Gail Byer, and
Michael Small. “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do,” is a terrific theatrical collaboration of story and music with plenty of laughs. Tickets are $48 at the box office presently located at 8036 Sample Road, Margate. For all additional information call 954-344-7765. Performances are Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. Purchase online at www.stagedoorfl.org.
