With glitz, glamour, giggles, and gossip, The Boy Friend is sure to please. The parodic musical is set in the roaring 20’s and begins with Polly, a sweet, innocent, and rich character played by senior Taylor Wade. The story begins when Polly tells her friends about a made up boyfriend.
“I love how sweet Polly is, she definitely brings out a better side of me,” said Wade.
After Polly meets Tony, an endearing and affectionate character played by junior Christopher Ma, they are instantly attracted to each other. However troubles come their way when the truth unfolds and miscommunications happen. From there, an endearing and quirky show blossoms with flecks of humor, romance, and fun, with elaborate dances numbers and amusing songs.
“The Boy Friend is a musical that features an extraordinary amount of wonderfully talented actors,” said David Judson, the co-director of musical. This famous musical first premiered in London in 1953, directed by
Sandy Wilson, with it’s original production having been played over 2,078 times. This musical is perfect for those who love a good laugh, or an endearing romance between two lively characters while watching other characters have stories of their own.
“My favorite thing about the characters is that they’re stereotypical yet funny,” said Carly Becerra, backstage manager.
