42nd Street
Free-Rain Theatre Company presents
42nd Street

26 Mar 2018 to 15 Apr 2018


One of show business’s most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway.

Peggy arrives to New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, armed with her tap shoes and big dreams. Peggy’s talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh, who gives her a spot in the chorus of Pretty Lady, his newest show. Pretty Lady stars Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva, who takes an instant dislike to the new girl in the cast. When Dorothy is injured during the show’s previews, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found — someone like Peggy Sawyer!

Peggy’s rise from showgirl to star is the stuff of show business dreams. 42nd Street is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards such as ‘Lullaby of Broadway‘ and ‘Shuffle Off to Buffalo’, and show-stopping ensemble production numbers including ‘We’re in the Money’ and ‘Forty-Second Street’.

Full of all the glitz and glamour that a classic broadway musical can offer, the Free-Rain Theatre production of 42ND Street an amazing, uplifting, high energy show and quite simply this show has the ‘WOW’ factor!
