The theme is familiar — an aging actress threatened by youth — but we’re giving it a fresh, new spin! BACKSTAGE will bring it all together through shared stories of a group of performers who frequent a bar constructed on the stage of a closed theater. Don’t miss an all star line up of Town veterans, including Dell Goodrich (Stand By Your Man), Mary Joy Williams (Nice Work If You Can Get It), Megan Douthitt (Mary Poppins), Corey Langley (The Addams Family), Bill LaLima (Les Mis), Bob Blencowe (Stand By Your Man), Allison Allgood (Sugar), Samantha Livoti (Singin’ in the Rain), Kathy Hartzog (The Honky Tonk Angels), Nate Stern (The Addams Family), Rebecca Seezen (Spamalot),  as well as a number of talented newcomers including Robin Saviola and Rachel Rizzutti (both seen in Village Square's 9 to 5)! Enjoy a “behind the scenes” look at show business through the songs of Applause (All About Eve), Curtains, Grey Gardens, The Act, The Magic Show, Seesaw, A Class Act, Me and Juliet, Barnum, Little Me and Mack & Mabel.
