Terry Langley as Broadway musical producer Flo Zweibach tries to tempt Debbie Mendoza’s character Mary Conklin into turning in her waitress apron for a shot at stardom in the Over the Hill Theatricals production of “All Aboard for Broadway.” The play will be presented tonight, Saturday and Sunday at the Sunnyside High School auditorium.

The Delaney Sisters from the cast of the Over the Hill Theatricals production of All Aboard for Broadway, remind community theater-lovers to come out and see the play filled with George M. Cohan music.

This weekend is the final three performances for this show with is a real ‘toe tapping’ music, said Betty Minnich, who plays Olive Delany in the two-act musical.

“If you are a fan of Cohan’s patriotic music is the show for you,” she said.

Fellow Delaney sister Joyce Taylor, as Opal, also encourages play goers to come see the show.

“We have romantic heartbreak, comedic twists, skullduggery and shenanigans galore,” Taylor said.

In addition to their own characterizations, there is the lovelorn Billie Fine, played with great flair by Sheila Hazzard. Billie tries unsuccessfully to catch and keep the attentions of Broadway producer Flo Zweibach played by Terry Langley.

But Zwiebach only has eyes for his new ingenue Mary Conklin, played by Debbie Mendoza. Miss Conklin, however, only has eyes and a heart for song writer and World War I doughboy Harry Harrigan played by Brian Tuor.

In the background are Billie’s erstwhile childhood beau, Tex Landry, played by Lloyd Hazzard, complete with a lasso to reclaim Miss Fine’s affections. Meanwhile the show must go on with salutes to the Grand Old Flag, Over There and Give My Regards to Broadway.

Tonight (Friday) the curtain opens at 7:30 p.m. at the Sunnyside High School auditorium, 1801 E. Edison Ave. Saturday and Sunday curtain time is 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are on sale at the door.

“We would love to have you in the audience,” the sister said.
