Fall Show

Directed by 3-time Jeff Award Winner, Dominic Missimi

Winning Tony awards for Best Musical and Best Musical Revival more than 50 years apart, featuring a host of classic Broadway songs including Steam Heat, Hey There, Once a Year Day and Hernando's Hideaway, and made into a hit movie starring Doris Day, The Pajama Game has earned its reputation as being one of Broadway's best musicals.

Set in the 1950s, The Pajama Game concerns the battle between the Sleep Tite Pajama Factory management and employees over a 7 1/2 cent raise. In this tightly run factory, conditions are anything but ideal as the union struggles to convince the president of the factory, "Old Man" Hasler, to give them a raise on par with other factories. Amidst the growing conflict, sparks fly between the new superintendent, Sid Sorokin, and the leader of the Union Grievance Committee, Babe Williams, but their romance is quickly stifled when Hasler refuses the union's calls for a raise, forcing Sid and Babe to be on opposing sides of the clash. As the labour dispute continues to escalate, jealousy, love, sex and politics all collide in the chaos of the Sleep Tite factory.
