The Savannah College of Art and Design’s (SCAD) performing arts department will take patrons on a musical trip down memory lane with their production of “The Lucas Show: Happy Days Are Here Again!"

 

Set in 1930s Savannah, the original musical celebrates one of the city's true cultural gems: the historic Lucas Theatre for the Arts, according to a press release.

In 1930, the Lucas Theatre was a shining symbol of optimism and perseverance, the release said. SCAD performing arts brings the decade to life with such iconic songs as "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime," "Happy Days are Here Again," "Singin' in the Rain," "Georgia on My Mind" and "Get Happy.”

The show stars SCAD performing arts students American Idol Season 12 winner Candice Glover, and three-time winner at the Apollo George Lucas.

The production was conceived by performing arts chair Mark Tymchyshyn and directed by performing arts professor Jay Jaski, with musical direction and orchestral arrangements by music director Kevin Wallace and choreography by ensemble director Annie Bridges.
