42nd Street follows the story of aspiring actress Peggy Sawyer. Unfortunately, due to her nervousness, Peggy arrives late to her big audition and misses her chance to join the chorus. Luckily, Peggy soon catches the eye of the famous director, Julian Marsh, and he gives Peggy her big break. However, the show’s aging leading lady, Dorothy Brock, quickly grows to dislike Peggy. On opening night, Ms. Brock falls and breaks her ankle. Panic spreads through the company, as the show is doomed for closure, until it is suggested that Peggy take the role. In only thirty-six hours, Peggy learns twenty-five pages, six songs and ten dance numbers and becomes a star. But the path to stardom isn’t easy, and Peggy learns to navigate the ups and downs of show business while romance and rivalry unfold backstage. 42nd Street captures the essence of dreams, determination, and the magic of the theatre.  This classic show features powerful dance numbers and includes memorable songs such as "We're in the Money" and "Lullaby of Broadway."
