Creighton Sets Sail With Latest Production

Creighton University Fine and Performing Arts will present the musical spoof, Dames at Sea, at 7:30 p.m. Feb 6-9 and 2 p.m. Feb. 10, in the Studio Theater of the Lied Education Center for the Arts located at 24th and Cass streets. Tickets are general admission $5 with a Creighton ID, $15 for senior citizens and $18 for the general public.

Dames at Sea is a musical spoof of the flashy 1930's Busby Berkeley-style musicals. Small town dancer Ruby makes her way to the Broadway stage in hopes of being a star. She finds herself cast in the much-anticipated show "Dames at Sea." When the theater is on the verge of closure, Ruby and friends find a solution on the open sea. Friendship and romance ensue to create a musical comedy for all ages.

The musical is directed by recent Creighton graduate Carli Haney and features choreography by Patrick Roddy and music direction by Barron Breland. Haney received her BFA in Technical Theatre in December. In March, she is moving to Las Vegas to continue work in the theater and entertainment industry.

The musical showcases the talents of 11 Creighton students, including three upperclassmen Veronica Benton, Chelsey Hill and Ariel Talacko and features a script by George Haimsohn and Robin Miller with music by Jim Wise.

Tickets are $5 for general admission with a Creighton ID, $15 for senior citizens and $18 for the general public.
