Cry-BabyRomeo and Juliet meets High School Hellcats in the hit summer musical coming to the stage of Clarksville’s oldest professional theatre.

Based on the John Waters cult classic film, CRY-BABY: The Musical opens Friday, June 3, at 8:00pm. In keeping with the theatre’s pay-what-you-can opening night tradition, all tickets not pre-sold at the regular price will go on sale at 7:30pm that evening for a $5 minimum donation.

Set in 1950s Baltimore, the conservative squares face off against the leather-clad delinquents in this rockabilly musical from the creative team behind Hairspray – Thomas Meehan and Mark O’Donnell – featuring a score from Fountains of Wayne co-founder Adam Schlesinger and “The Daily Show” executive producer David Javerbaum.

Directed by Ryan Bowie and choreographed by Emily Rourke with music direction by Tyler Saunders, CRY-BABY stars Matthew Combs and Caitlyn Porayko as bad boy Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker and square rich girl Allison Vernon-Williams, a pair of star-crossed lovers at the center of a world where everyone likes Ike and nobody likes communism.

The coolest boy in Baltimore, Cry-Baby is a bad boy with a good cause – truth, justice and the pursuit of rock ‘n’ roll. Fueled by hormones and the new rhythms of the times, Allison turns her back on her squeaky clean boyfriend to become a “drape” (a Baltimore juvenile delinquent) and Cry-Baby’s moll.

Featuring local attorney Stacy Turner as Mrs. Cordelia Vernon-Williams, the cast also includes David Ridley as Dupree W. Dupree; Michael Ricciardone as Baldwin Blandish; Aubrie Lauren as Pepper Walker; Emily Rourke as Wanda Woodward; Victoria Preisman as Mona “Hatchet-Face” Malnorowski; Hannah Lauren Wilson as Lenora Frigid; and Kyle Javon Blocker, Tyler Saunders and Brett Vance as The Whiffles. Rounding out the cast are Derek Alexander, Ansley Arthur, Caleb Crosby, Donald Groves, Beth Kirby, Faith Konty, Michael Olson, Mikquala Skelton and Katie Stafford.

CRY-BABY: The Musical is produced in part through the generous support of Hugh & Joy Hatcher and Melissa A. Schaffner. Additional funding support has been provided by the Asquith, Reynolds-Burgett Family; Sal & Andrea Herrera; and Stacey Streetman. This production is presented by arrangement with and all authorized performance materials are supplied by Music Theatre International (MTI), www.mtishows.com.
