This play is a hilarious story of a unique cast who must pull
Hennesey's latest musical together, despite conflicts -- including a
drastic change of venue.
"'Dames at Sea' pokes fun at 1930s musicals, including '42nd
Street' and 'Anything Goes,'" Jodlowski said. "It is a fun-filled
dance show that every audience member will enjoy."
Tickets are $6 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens,
and $4 for children.
