If you have stopped by the busy Center for the Arts recently, chances are you heard the tapping of feet as the hard working cast of 42ND STREET have been practicing to perfect their steps since February. With fifteen production numbers featuring memorable songs and toe-tapping choreography, this show is sure to please Center audiences. 42ND STREET - the song and dance fable of Broadway, features such familiar showtunes as "We're In The Money," "Lullaby of Broadway," "Shuffle Off To Buffalo," "Dames," "I Only Have Eyes For You" and of course "42nd Street." 42ND STREET runs Friday, May 13th thru Sunday, May 29th, with shows on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The show is directed and choreographed by Julie Wilcox, with musical direction by Mark Thomas.

Based on a novel by Bradford Ropes and Busby Berkeley's 1933 movie, 42ND STREET tells the story of a starry-eyed young dancer named Peggy Sawyer who leaves her Allentown home and comes to New York to audition for the new Broadway musical Pretty Lady. When the star breaks her ankle, Peggy takes over and becomes a star. The Tony award winning show was written by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, music by Harry Warren and lyrics by Al Dubin. The original Broadway production of 42ND STREET played for 3,486 performances, winning Tony Awards for Best Musical and Best Choreography for Gower Champion's dances. The Broadway revival opened in 2001 for 1,524 performances and earned two Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical.

Kait Kloss will be playing the starry-eyed Peggy Sawyer, accompanied by Janet Galvao as the formidable Dorothy Brock, Mark Thomas as Julien Marsh, Alexius Frost as Maggie Jones, and Michael Maupins as Billy Lawlor. Many other familiar faces grace the stage as well in supporting roles including Dr. Reed Thomas as Pat Denning, Mitch Shannon as Abner Dillion, and Ty Walker as Bert Barry.
