Patriotic music on tap for next show at Matunuck

George M! will be the next production at the Theatre by the Sea in Matunuck.

As a tribute to the Rhode Island native, and the celebration of America and the Fourth of July, this fast paced show follows the great song-and-dance man, George M. Cohan, over a 60-year period from his childhood on the vaudeville circuit to New York where he began his 25-year reign over the Broadway stage.

This giant of the American musical theatre gave the world such songs as "Yankee Doodle Dandy," "Over There," "You're A Grand Old Flag" and "Give My Regards to Broadway." Tap dancing, flag waving and the American Dream, make this triumphant musical perfect for the whole family.

George M! will be presented from June 18 to July 12, with preview performances on June 18 and 19 and opening night scheduled for June 20.

Tickets are on sale at the box office Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., online 24-hours-aday at www.theatrebythesea.com and via telephone during normal box office hours by calling (401) 782- TKTS (8587).
