Meet Jerry’s Girls!

Who are “Jerry’s Girls”? They’re the larger-than-life women created by composer Jerry Herman in his many Broadway hits. They’re ladies like the irrepressible Dolly Levi (“Hello, Dolly,”), the incorrigible Auntie Mame (“Mame”), or the inimitable Zaza (“La Cage aux Folles”). And Jerry’s Girls are coming to South Bay Musical Theatre for TWO SHOWS ONLY, February 13 and 20 at 2:30 pm.

Showcasing the master’s songs is a cast of the South Bay’s top female talent (see our flyer below). They’ll treat you to songs like “Put on Your Sunday Clothes,” “If He Walked Into My Life,” “We Need a Little Christmas,” “I Am What I Am,” “Before the Parade Passes By,” and more. If you love musical theater, you’ll want to join us for JERRY’S GIRLS!

Tickets are available at http://www.southbaymt.com/shows/jerrysgirls.html. Be there!
