PAPA presents Damn Yankees
Jul 26 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
PAPA presents Damn Yankees @ The Plaza Arts Center

Three Performances: 

Friday, July 26 at 7:00 PM

Saturday, July 27 at 7:00 PM

Sunday, July 28 at 2:00 PM

Tickets $15 -$20 – $25

Based on the novel, The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglass Wallop, Damn Yankees the Broadway mega-hit and winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, hits it out of the park! The winning score by Adler and Ross and a devilish book by George Abbot have made this sporty musical comedy a true American classic.

Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd, trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr. Applegate, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation, Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life that he’s left behind. Joe ultimately outsmarts Applegate, returns to his former self and shepherds the Senators to the World Series.

Light, fast-paced and devilishly clever, Damn Yankees is a homerun hit, featuring all-American subject matter and an irreverent sense of humor. The perfect choice for a high school’s spring musical or community theatre production, Damn Yankees is a wicked, romantic comedy, sure to please.
