By: Lauren Murphy

This Friday, April 7, the Arlington High School Gilbert & Sullivan Club debuts their 80th annual musical: The Gershwin’s “Crazy For You”. It is set to premiere in the Lowe Auditorium at AHS this Friday night at 7:30pm. Additional performances will be held on Saturday (4/8) at 7:30pm and Sunday (4/9) at 3:00pm.

The musical tells the story of Bobby (Ben Horsburgh), an aspiring Broadway performer whose mother dreams of a more conventional career for him. Bobby tries to live his life as his mother wants but ends up in Nevada at a theater company. It is there that he meets his love interest (Clara Hevia) and gets a chance to pursue his theatrical dreams. Complete with good humor and lively music, “Crazy For You”’s opening night is much anticipated by the AHS community.

The show is perfect for audiences of all ages. Tickets will be sold online, from cast and crew members, in the AHS main office and at the door. The cost for students is $10, staff $12, and adults $15.
