ROCKLAND — “42nd Street - The Musical” will be screened at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., on Thursday, July 25, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. One of Broadway's most classic and beloved tales, staged at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane, comes to cinema screens in the largest-ever production of the breathtaking musical.

“42nd Street,” set in 1933, tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway. Peggy arrives in New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Penn. and her talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh. She gets a spot in the chorus of the musical-within-the-musical, “Pretty Lady.” Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva and star of the show, takes a dislike to the new girl. When Dorothy is injured, “Pretty Lady” looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found — someone like Peggy Sawyer!

The production is directed by the original author of the show, Mark Bramble. This extravaganza is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards (“Lullaby of Broadway,” “We’re in the Money (the gold digger’s song), “42nd Street” and more), and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.

The running time is 2 hours, 30 minutes, including one intermission. Tickets are $12.50 general admission and $10.50 for Strand members. To buy tickets, or for more information, visit rocklandstrand.com, call 594-0070 ext. 3 or email info@rocklandstrand.com.
