The Roar of the Greasepaint - The Smell of the Crowd

May 20 – Jun 26, 2016 / The Terris Theatre - 33 N Main Street, Chester, CT 06412 view map

In a world turned upside down, a rag-tag group relies on humor, song and dance to try to build a new life. But can show tunes and music hall merriment revive the human spirit? On the highway of life, hope is just around the bend in this arresting reinvention of the vivacious Broadway hit. Their world may have ended, but songs like "Who Can I Turn To?," "The Joker," "Feeling Good" and "A Wonderful Day Like Today" echo on, welcoming new love and another dawn.
