Fall Musical, The Pajama Game
November 22-23 & 28-29, 7:30 p.m., 4 p.m. Sunday matinee
Set in 1954 in a Cedar Rapids, Iowa pajama factory, the musical The Pajama Game follows the journey of Babe Williams and Sid Sorokin, two employees in the Sleep Tite Pajama Factory. Add to this the antics of other wacky characters and some beautiful, fun and timeless music, such as the songs Steam Heat, Hey There and Hernando's Hideaway, and you have a musical that presents a serious message about workers' rights and corporate greed, while never forgetting to entertain.
