VENTURA, Calif. - July 31, 2017 - PRLog -- The Big Apple hits the big stage when Rubicon's Musical Theatre Intensive presents the quintessential musical comedy ON THE TOWN. Set in New York City during WWII, three sailors explore the city during their 24-hour leave only to find love and adventure at every turn. Based on a 1944 ballet, Fancy Free, developed by Leonard Bernstein and Jerome Robbins, with book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, On the Town features some of Bernstein's most recognizable Broadway songs. Co-directed by Associate Artistic Director and Director of Education and Outreach Brian McDonald with choreographer Carolanne Marano andmusical direction by Miriam Arichea this fun-filled musical sweeps through the world's most iconic city with dazzling dance numbers, humor and memorable show tunes. A live 8-piece orchestra will feature local professionals and students performing familiar songs that include "Come Up to My Place," "Lucky to Be Me," "Some Other Time" and "New York, New York." This high-energy and unapologetically American musical opens August 4 and runs for two weeks through August 12.

The year is 1944 and a trio of footloose sailors, determined to make the most of their 24-hour shore leave, head out on the town in New York City. Thoughtful Chip, easygoing Ozzie and incurably romantic Gabey each have their own idea of fun and frolic, but after Gabey sees a photo of 'Miss Turnstiles' in the subway, he is convinced that she's the girl for him. The three sailors agree to split up and find Gabey's dream girl. Along the way, each one falls in love before reuniting as six newfound friends. From Coney Island to Times Square, ON THE TOWN is as energetic and exciting as the city that never sleeps.

Brian McDonald describes ON THE TOWN, as "a joyous musical with big belly laughs and tremendous heart – perfect for the entire family!
