Shop Requirement

As part of participating in an SBMT production, actors will be expected to commit six hours, spread out over one or two Saturdays, to help build the set. For those physically unable to assist with building or painting, volunteering in other departments is also an option. Food is provided, and it’s a great way to bond with your fellow actors. Your assistance with assembling the sets is how SBMT is able to fund its high quality productions, and we deeply appreciate it. Thank you for your understanding.

SHOW DESCRIPTION

An intimate and touching show, featuring music by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof) and book by Joe Masteroff (Cabaret)She Loves Me was nominated for five Tony Awards in 1964. The 1993 Broadway revival won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical and the 1994 Critics Circle Award for Best Musical. Considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written, She Loves Me is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old world elegance.

Set in a 1930s European perfumery, we meet shop clerks, Amalia and Georg, who, more often than not, don’t see eye to eye. After both respond to a “lonely hearts advertisement” in the newspaper, they now live for the love letters that they exchange, but the identity of their admirers remains unknown. Join Amalia and Georg to discover the identity of their true loves… and of all the twists and turns along the way!
