Barry Manilow's Copacabana

by Troy River

American High School Performing Arts proudly presents Barry Manilow's Copacabana, a new musical comedy.

A love letter to the Technicolor musicals of the 1940s, Copacabana presents the story of Lola (April Labson) as told through the eyes of Stephen (Julian Armas), a present day aspiring songwriter whose imagination takes him back to a time when "music and passion were always in fashion." He dreams up Lola, fresh off the plane from Tulsa, who arrives in New York with show-biz aspirations. Tony (who looks amazingly like Stephen), is a bartender-composer who falls in love with Lola and helps her become a "Copa girl." While performing, Lola attracts the amorous attentions of Rico, who abducts Lola and takes her to his rival nightclub in Havana. Tony, with the help of his Copacabana friends, must now rescue Lola before . . . well, even if you know the song, there are still a few surprises!

Beginning in April, tickets can be purchased in advance at American High School's Theatre 70, Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., or at the door on show nights (box office opens 45 minutes before show).

Ticket prices: Students $8, General Admission $10, Reserved $12.
