Beverly Theatre Guild (BTG), Chicago’s longest running community theater, will present the romantic musical comedy “She Loves Me,” Fri., Oct. 12 and Sat., Oct. 13, 8 p.m., and Sun., Oct. 14, 2 p.m., Morgan Park Academy Arts Center, 2153 W. 111th St.
Set in a 1930s European perfumery the show revolves around shop clerks, Amalia and Georg, who, more often than not, don’t see eye to eye. Both of the clerks respond to a “lonely hearts” advertisement in the newspaper, then live for the love letters they exchange with their anonymous admirers. A series of endearing and witty twists and turns unfolds as Amalia and Georg move closer to discovering the identity of their true loves.
Music for “She Loves Me” is by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, who also wrote the music for “Fiddler On the Roof,” and the book is by “Caberet” author Joe Masteroff.
Glenn Hering of Beverly/Morgan Park directs the show which is considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written. The cast features actors and vocalists from the community and throughout Chicago.
Tickets are $24 and available online at www.beverlytheatreguild.org or by phone at 773-BTG-TIXS.
