Quirk’s Players of G. Ray Bodley High School will present its 2012 Broadway musical, “Damn Yankees,” this week.
Performances are scheduled for Thursday, March 8; Friday, March 9 and Saturday, March 10 in the high-school auditorium. Curtain time is set for 7:30 P.M. each evening. Additionally, there will be a 2:00 P.M. matinee Saturday as well.
“‘Damn Yankees’ is a great story with wonderful music,” explained Tom Briggs, theatre director at G. Ray Bodley High School. “It is a story of love, self-discovery and baseball. Set in the nostalgic 195’s, ‘Damn Yankees’ is thought provoking and moving.”
Briggs explained that the story centers around middle-aged real estate agent Joe Boyd who has two great loves in his life – his devoted wife Meg and his favorite baseball team, the Washington Senators.
Joe never loses faith in his Senators even though they are in last place and they are always crushed by the New York Yankees. Furious after another loss, Joe says he would, “sell his soul” for one long ball hitter. Coincidentally at that moment, an ominous character appears and offers Joe an opportunity of a lifetime. Joe is given a chance to become the one to lead the Senators to victory – but it comes at a huge price.
