    Fisher Auditorium, Performing Arts Center

    A coproduction of IUP Music Theater and Theater-by-the-Grove

    Through a twisted set of scenarios, confused identities, mismatched lovers, and super-sized characters, this fast-paced farce of a musical embarks on a path of true hijinks and adventure. Set on and below the deck of a luxury ocean liner, a young, love-sick, Wall Street broker stows away on the S.S. American in hopes of winning the heart of his beloved. In addition to its title song, this one-of-a-kind family American musical classic includes such mega-hits as “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “Take Me Back to Manhattan,” and “You’re the Top.” The newly-renovated Fisher Auditorium offers the perfect setting as Music Theater and Theater-by-the-Grove return with this period musical romp. Tickets available at the HUB Box Office and 45 minutes before performances at the Performing Arts Center Box Office: Regular - $15; Senior - $13; I-Card - $9.
