Book by Neil Simon
Music by Marvin Hamlish
Lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager
Le Petit Theatre de Terrebonne opens its 2015-2016 season with the delightful musical comedy, They’re Playing Our Song. The play by Neil Simon, with music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager, opens on July 16 with a special reception to honor the opening of the new bridge connecting the Park Avenue parking lot to Main Street and the theatre. The play closes with the Sunday matinee on July 26.
The play centers around Vernon (Matt Chauvin), an extremely successful and traditional composer with a solid reputation on Broadway stages and the local pop music scene, and Sonia (Brittany Rogers-Bourque), an up and coming lyricist, who could best be described as “kooky.” Following a rather awkward beginning, their relationship develops both professionally and romantically, with all the humorous roadblocks expected in a typical New York City love story. The two musicians are aided by “The Girls” (Alanna Chauvin, Brittany Pellegrin, and Natalie Domangue) and “The Boys” (Doug Hamilton, Chris Fakier and Andrew Domangue), who provide the back ground music and keep the story line flowing.
The play is directed by Pat Hornsby Crochet, with musical direction by Sarah Todd, choreography by Meghan Mella Acosta, and piano accompaniment by Casey Haynes. Production duties are being co-handled by Robyn Hornsby and Paul Labat, with Nelson Bertinot taking over the set duties and Red Hornsby managing the lights and sound responsibilities.
