Music Theatre for Young People presents the Kansas City Premiere of Once Upon a Time in New Jersey

MTYP will be presenting its annual senior show, Once Upon a
Time in New Jersey, on June 1st at 7:30 pm and June 2nd at 2:30
pm in the Saints Theater at St. Thomas Aquinas (114th and
Pflumm). Seating is reserved with advanced tickets available at $12
for students and $18 for adults. Tickets at the door are $20 for
adults and $15 for students. Reservations are through the Central
Ticket Office: 816-235-6222.

Once Upon a Time in New Jersey will be directed by Cary
Danielson, choreographed by MTYP Alumni and NYC choreographer
Kyle Mullins, and music directed by Julie Danielson, MTYP's Artistic
and Resident Music Director. The show will feature 12 recent
graduates from the Greater Kansas City metropolitan area.

This Kansas City premiere is the winner of the 2003 Richard
Rodgers Award for Best New Musical. Set in New Jersey in 1956,
Once Upon a Time in New Jersey is a funny, frantic and frenzied
fairy tale about what we do for love. Sweet, shy deli clerk Vinnie
switches lives with Rocco, the town stud, to win the heart of the
woman he loves. A farce about dames, games, foods, feuds, molls,
dolls, thugs, lugs, switches, snitches, glitches and mistaken
identities... and how a simple sandwich guy becomes a hero.
