GEORGE M! recounts the life story of George M. Cohan, a giant of the American musical Theater who penned songs like "Yankee Doodle Dandy," "Over There," "You're A Grand Old Flag," and "Give My Regards to Broadway." In his triumphant career, Cohan helped transform the Broadway musical from a slapdash patchwork of songs and sketches into a streamlined, book-driven musical story. Covering a sixty-year period from his childhood in vaudeville through his towering success on Broadway, GEORGE M! presents a rousing, tuneful portrait of this legendary song-and-dance man.

Young Performers Workshop is dedicated to the enrichment of young lives through experience in the theatre arts, and serves as a venue for cultivating young theatre performers between the ages of eight and 18. The program is one of only a handful in the nation that offers both formal training and production experience for young people. Tickets are available.
