Spring musical, 'Damn Yankees,' fun time
for the audience
     Send a link to a friend

[MAY 11, 2004]  Lincoln Community High School's spring musical, "Damn Yankees," will be performed May 13-16 in the LCHS auditorium.

"Damn Yankees" is about a middle-aged man who ultimately makes a deal with the devil to become a younger, athletic version of himself and help the fictitious Washington Senators beat those Yankees once and for all.

During his journey to clinch the pennant, Joe begins to miss his wife and the name he made for himself throughout his non-famous life. As the devil, Applegate, sees Joe wanting to use his "escape clause," Applegate tries to lure him into staying with him by sending Lola to tempt him away from his wife. When that fails, Applegate starts a nasty rumor, which Joe must prove false in order to keep his good name.

The decision lies in Joe's hands whether to choose fame, fortune and youth over his wife and middle-aged mediocrity. What will he decide? Come and see for yourself.
