'The Pajama Game' plays in Rocklin

-A +A
The dangers of a workplace romance are explored in “The Pajama Game,” a romantic comedy from the creators of Damn Yankees. Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a seven and a half-cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well. Included in the score are familiar tunes such as “Hey, There (You with the Stars in Your Eyes),” “Hernando’s Hideaway” and “Steam Heat.” The Pajama Game is presented by Rocklin Community Theatre in association with the city of Rocklin’s Theatre and Arts Program. The cast is made up of local talent and the show will be performed with a live orchestra at the Finnish Temperance Hall, 4090 Rocklin Road in Rocklin. “The Pajama Game” When: Performances run at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays March 5-21; doors open 30 minutes before show time Where: Finnish Temperance Hall, 4090 Rocklin Road Cost: $12 for general admission; tickets will be available at the door one hour before performances Info: www.RocklinCommunityTheatre.com; e-mail RocklinCommunityTheatre@yahoo.com ~ Staff report
