Vero Beach Theatre Guild presents MUSICAL CHAIRS

Performances run November 4 – 27.  This delightful musical is about an audience watching a play! Joe Preston has not had a hit in years and hopes his new play will revive his career. He is at the mercy of an off Broadway audience consisting of two typical “gray haired matinee ladies,” a married couple who fight all the time, an anxious young man waiting for his date, an illiterate rock singer trying to impress his date with some culture, a Texas businessman and his culture vulture wife and three critics– one of who hates Preston’s work and another who begged his editor not to assign him to this show because Sam, his lover who recently jilted him, is in the cast. Poor Joe Preston! Marvelous music, hysterical comedy, and at least six showstoppers make this a surefire winner!
