Theatre Guild were delighted to produce Crazy for You as our 2011 musical. With a screwball storyline, classic 30’s styling, dozens of character roles, huge ‘song and dance’ chorus numbers and a Gershwin Score that reads like the “Greatest Hits” of the 1930s, this was a popular show with our members and our audience.
This was the show where Karen Herbison took the Director’s chair for the first time and the ‘firsts’ continued as David McCurrach and Adele Simpson played our all singing, all dancing all Gershwin leading roles! Lank’s ‘HOTEL’ sign had to be rebuilt by the stage crew for every performance and prompt Dorothy Bedford didn’t have to say a word all week thanks to Adele who, it seemed, had memorised the entire script! Social networking became a big part of our promotion for the show which included webmaster Cammy’s “Beardwatch” on Twitter and Facebook. Ticket sales topped the 90% mark helping chairman, David Brown, sleep at night while a large portion of the budget spent on the 11-strong band proved to be worth every penny as they delivered the atmospheric 1930s score to perfection! UK Theatre network posted a great REVIEW saying that “Theatre Guild Glasgow .., who never fail to impress, hit all the high notes”!
