The production is sponsored by Bignoli Enterprises of Norwalk.
With a sparkling score of beloved standards and a whimsical story that dances between romance, satire, and fairy tale, “Finian's Rainbow” is a musical theater treasure. Set in the mythical southern state of Missitucky, “Finian's Rainbow” pits a charming Irish dreamer and his headstrong daughter against the host of complications that await them in their newly adopted land, giving birth to some of the most witty, charming and heartfelt songs ever written for the stage. The musical's score boasts such classic songs as "Old Devil Moon," "When I'm Not Near the Girl I Love," "Look to the Rainbow," "If This Isn't Love” and "How Are Things in Glocca Morra?”
Written by Burton Lane, Fred Saidy and E.Y. Harburg, this musical comedy satire, which makes you wonder what happens “When the Idle Poor Become the Idle Rich,” is as timely now as when it was written in 1947.
“Finian’s Rainbow” is also the 2019 Caryl Crane Youth Theatre Competition Team production. Having won the Outstanding Production title at last year’s Junior Theatre Festival in Atlanta with “The Lion King,” CCYT is taking “Finian’s Rainbow” back in late January to defend its title. The production features 30 students from 11 area schools.
Experience the enchantment of “Finian’s Rainbow” at Caryl Crane Youth Theatre. Tickets are $6 to 12 and are available by calling 419-626-1950 or ordering online at www.sanduskystate.com. This performance is rated G.
