The Pajama Game’ was an instant hit when first staged on Broadway, winning the Tony Award for best musical in 1955 and further fame via the 1957 film starring Doris Day. One of the all time musical theatre classics.
At the Sleep-Tite pajama factory all is not well and the atmosphere is far from calm and snoozy. The workers are up in arms having been refused a seven-and-a-half cents per hour pay rise by the intransigent owner, Mr Hasler.
Into this cauldron of bubbling industrial unrest comes Sid Sorokin, the handsome new factory Supervisor. He quickly comes up against the Grievance Committee led by feisty, good looker Babe Williams and falls head over heels in love with her. But, as ever, the path of true love doesn’t run smooth as they clash over divided loyalties – a battle of the sexes plus management v labour. Will our lovers win through?
Intrigue, shenanigans, fun and frolic follow with sharp witty dialogue and songs and dance numbers that have become musical theatre standards including ‘Hey There!’, ‘I’m not at all in Love’, ‘Steam Heat’ and ‘Hernando’s Hideaway’.
Don’t miss this joyous, timeless, musical comedy performed by a superb cast and talented musicians. Come and join the fun.
