This Friday, the southern premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s unconventional musical, “Song & Dance” will open at The Legacy Theatre in Tyrone, Ga.

The show’s first act tells the story of Emma, a young English girl who comes to New York full of ambitions to be a hat designer and who learns about America, and about herself, through her encounters with four American men including Joe, a young man from Nebraska. Emma’s story is told in song while the second act, the story of Joe’s subsequent life in New York, is told through dance.

This production of “Song & Dance” features local resident and theater owner, Bethany Hayes Smith, as Emma and New York City resident Matthew Helton as Joe.

The second act will feature six additional dancers including Dustin Lewis, Borris York, Laura Simpson, Lyndsey Clark, Sheena Cruce and Kathryn Wright.

“Song & Dance” opens Friday, April 13 at 8 p.m. and will run through May 6.
