A city slicker falls for a hometown girl in this ebullient romantic comedy featuring cowboys, showgirls, high-energy production numbers, and a glorious score from George and Ira Gershwin. 

In the 1930s, everybody dreams of being a star in the bright lights of Broadway. Everybody including Bobby Child, a young New York banker who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. There, Bobby falls for feisty Polly Baker, the theatre owner’s daughter, but she’s not quite so taken with the city slicker.Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. 

Bath Operatic and Dramatic Society return to the Main House for the first time since March 2020 with this fabulous golden age musical, showcasing some of the Gershwin’s most famous numbers, including I Got Rhythm, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Embraceable You, Nice Work If You Can Get It and Someone to Watch Over Me.

BODS is one of the most acclaimed amateur companies in the region and has been performing in Bath since 1894. Recent productions at the Theatre Royal include Fiddler on the Roof, My Fair Lady, Sweet Charity, West Side Story, Hairspray and Legally Blonde, the final production to be staged in the Main House before lockdown last Spring.
