Yankee Doodle Dandy: The Song and Dance Man

Age Level: Middle Grades to High School
Cast: 16F, 16M, plus dancers and chorus
Time: 90 minutes, 2 acts

Similar to The Music Man, but easier to stage, this show is full of music and comedy action. The angelic spirit of Broadway’s great song-and-dance man, George M. Cohan, reappears on earth to help stage a centennial pageant for the Rocky Mountain town of Snookersville. Add five original rock, ragtime and western ballads to many Cohan favorites like "Yankee Doodle Dandy," "Give My Regards to Broadway" and "You’re a Grand Old Flag" and you have a show that really bounces. Grumpy old Emily Snooker, great granddaughter of the founder, tries to force the teens of the town to stage a hilariously dull and phoney historical play but is outmaneuvered by Cohan and friends. Many comic roles: befuddled Mayor Gumper, dance teacher Gwendolyn LaFever, literature teacher Courtney Earnshaw, reincarnated General Snooker and many more! A wide variety of parts for a large or small chorus line, solo dancers, live guitar players and walk-ons. Lots of laughs and a love story, too!
