'Swinging on a Star' opens at Huntington Playhouse

The fabulous songs of Johnny Burke are perfectly woven into various settings in the musical revue, “Swinging on a Star.” The production opens Sept. 19 and plays through Oct. 13. Performances are on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. with one Sunday matinee open to the public on Oct. 13.

Featured songs include "Dr. Rhythm" and "What's New," the classic "Pennies from Heaven" and others. The ever popular "Your Hit Parade" takes us into the 1930s, segueing into a World War II, USO-type show for several songs including "Personality" and culminating with the Academy Award-winning "Swinging on a Star."

The cast consists of Alicia Fogal, Tony Heffner, Lynn Miller-Penegor, Carliegh Spence and Lawrence Wallace, directed by Ian Atwood.

Tickets are $20 for adults with pricing available for seniors (65 and older) and students (18 and younger). Reservations are strongly suggested and may be made by calling the box office at 440-871-8333.

Huntington Playhouse is located at 28601 Lake Road in Bay Village and is an affiliate of the Cleveland Metroparks.
