Dames at Sea

The Mississippi Bend Players are a Quad-Cities based theatre company housed in the Brunner Theatre and supported by Augustana College.

A long-running off-Broadway hit, this song-and-dance comedy both salutes and spoofs Hollywood musicals of the ’30s.

Innocent Ruby arrives in 1930s New York planning to make it on Broadway star. She gets a job in the chorus, but then learns the theater is to be torn down. Can Ruby and her friends save their show? “Dames at Sea” originally opened in 1966, and the 2016 revival was selected as “Best Musical of the Year” by Time, Newsweek and the Outer Critics Circle.

Directed by Shelley Cooper
