The Grand is excited to continue its fine tradition of presenting live theater on the Stanley Subaru Stage with a madcap production of Sandy Wilson’s “The Boyfriend” from George Stevens Academy in Blue Hill, running Friday November 11th and Saturday, November 12th, both at 7:00 pm. An heiress’ quest to land a boyfriend is the heart of this 1920s jazz-inspired spoof. Directed by Moira McMahon, this romantic spoof of 1920s musical comedies is set against the backdrop of the French Riviera and tells the story of English heiress, Polly, who is longing for only one thing: a boy friend. Polly’s father, convinced that any boy who isn’t wealthy will court Polly strictly for her financial situation, forbids her to engage any potential suitors. Honoring his wishes, Polly explains to Tony, the messenger boy with whom she’s fallen in love, that she is no rich girl. This is just the tip of the mistaken identity iceberg, as love proceeds to find its way charmingly through nearly every member of the cast and bring them all to a happy ending. Tickets for this General Admission presentation are as follows- $15 for Adults & Seniors and $8 for Students (17 & under).
