The TJ Middle School Musical -- Crazy For You
You’d be CRAZY to miss this show.
A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, CRAZY FOR YOU tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nev. to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows "through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity," to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include "I Got Rhythm," "They Can’t Take That Away from Me," "Embraceable You," "Nice Work if You Can Get It," and "Someone to Watch Over Me."

Thursday, June 8, 2017, at 7 p.m.
The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra
An outdoor concert at the sun sets, this evening will be an excellent opportunity to learn how to swing dance.  With its unique jazz sound, the Glenn Miller Orchestra is considered to be one of the greatest bands of all time. The present Glenn Miller Orchestra was formed in 1956 and has been touring consistently since, playing an average of 300 live dates a year all around the world.  Join us for a reception with the artists after the show.

The TJ Concert and Theater Series would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors.
