SR Theatre opens ‘She Loves Me’

Scripps Ranch Theatre (SRT) will ease playgoers into a holiday mood with its second play of the season, “She Loves Me,” running Nov. 9 through Dec. 16.

Described on the SRT website as “perhaps the most charming musical ever written,” “She Loves Me” is a romantic comedy featuring music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, the same songwriting team behind “Fiddler on the Roof.”

“[‘She Loves Me’] is a love story but it also has a holiday theme to it, so it fits in perfectly with a November-December time slot,” director Tim Leib said. “The play takes place in a perfume shop around the holiday season. There’s even a big number called ‘12 Days to Christmas’ that counts down the days left to finish holiday shopping.”

The main story in the play is about Georg [yes, that’s how it’s spelled] and Amalia, two people who work in the same shop, but do not get along with each other. Both have a pen pal who they’re devoted to writing to each week and look forward to reading the letters sent to them. As the letters go on, both Georg and Amalia fall in love with their pen pals, even though they’ve never met.

If that story sounds familiar, it’s because this play, based on the 1937 Hungarian play by Miklos Laslo, is the story upon which the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan movie “You’ve Got Mail” is based. The story was also the basis for a 1939 Jimmy Stewart film titled “The Shop Around the Corner.”

Subplots of the play include another couple working in the shop who have a different view on love, and the shop’s owner who is starting to think his wife of 30 years has been unfaithful.

“This show is a unique piece. A lot of people think this is the best score from the ’60s,” Leib said. “It is such a beautiful piece. I don’t know anyone who has seen a decent production of it who doesn’t love it.”

While written by the same team behind “Fiddler,” the songs of “She Loves Me” have a very different sound and feel from that play, featuring more of a classical musical theater style, according to Leib.

“The music is absolutely gorgeous. Some of the songs people likely would have heard before, like ‘Vanilla Ice Cream,’ the title song ‘She Loves Me,’ a beautiful tune called ‘Will He Like Me?’ and a song called ‘Ilona,’ which has a nice bossa nova feel to it,” he said.

Leib reported that the show is a favorite among theater actors and that fact prompted an enthusiastic response to the casting call.

“It’s not a show that’s done that often, but it’s something that a lot of musical actors know by reputation or experience,” he said. “It’s a lot of fun for the actors to perform and hopefully for the audience as well.”

The cast includes Taylor Magee, making her debut at SRT, in the role of Amalia; and Luke Monday as Georg. Tara Brown-Sampson makes her SRT debut as Ilona and Tanner Vidos plays Steven.

“This cast is energetic. They love one another. Everybody’s so excited to be putting this show on, and I think that’s going to translate to the audience,” Leib said.

The show on Friday, Nov. 9 is considered a soft opening, with Saturday, Nov. 10 being the official opening night. As is tradition at SRT, opening night will include a post-show reception that provides anyone who attended the show with the opportunity to meet the cast, directors and others who help put on the show.

Scripps Ranch Theatre is on the campus of Alliant International University, 9783 Avenue of Nations. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit scrippsranchtheatre.org.

  1. Spot on with this write-up, I truly suppose this website needs far more consideration. I抣l in all probability be once more to learn way more, thanks for that info.

  2. I have come across that nowadays, more and more people are attracted to digital cameras and the field of photography. However, like a photographer, you have to first devote so much time period deciding the model of dslr camera to buy along with moving from store to store just so you might buy the lowest priced camera of the brand you have decided to settle on. But it would not end now there. You also have to take into consideration whether you should obtain a digital digital camera extended warranty. Many thanks for the good points I received from your site.

  3. I have acquired some new things from your web-site about computers. Another thing I have always imagined is that computers have become a specific thing that each household must have for a lot of reasons. They offer convenient ways in which to organize the home, pay bills, shop, study, tune in to music as well as watch tv series. An innovative way to complete all of these tasks is a notebook. These computers are portable ones, small, strong and mobile.

  4. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back frequently!

  5. One thing is that when you are searching for a education loan you may find that you’ll need a co-signer. There are many conditions where this is correct because you may find that you do not have a past credit score so the loan provider will require you have someone cosign the borrowed funds for you. Thanks for your post.

  6. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your website? My website is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors would really benefit from some of the information you present here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Thanks!

  7. Thanks for the strategies you discuss through this site. In addition, quite a few young women who seem to become pregnant don’t even seek to get health insurance because they fear they probably would not qualify. Although a few states at this moment require that insurers present coverage irrespective of the pre-existing conditions. Prices on these kinds of guaranteed programs are usually higher, but when taking into consideration the high cost of medical care it may be a new safer strategy to use to protect your financial future.

  10. Lançado em meados de 2015 por um codificador russo-canadense chamado Vitalik Buterin, o Ether (ETH) se tornou a segunda criptomoeda mais valiosa em termos de capitalização de mercado em apenas 2 anos e ainda ocupa o lugar no momento da redação. A blockchain da Ethereum é muito mais poderosa por causa de sua capacidade de programação interna, o que significa que os desenvolvedores podem utilizar a plataforma para desenvolver aplicativos descentralizados (dApps). É aqui que o Ethereum entra: uma plataforma que fornece escassez digital para qualquer tipo de ativo digital. Ethereum dá  poder de escassez digital para mais do que apenas sua própria moeda nativa. Devido à Ethereum, a escassez digital pode ser feita para qualquer ativo encontrado em sua plataforma. “Tokenização” e o padrão ERC20, são a impressora para a escassez digital. Como resultado, Ethereum se tornou a camada de liquidação agnóstica de ativos para a internet. Por causa da sua ausência de permissão e abertura, qualquer ativo pode vir para Ethereum e usá-lo para gerenciamento de sua escassez e liquidação entre as partes. https://community.io3dp.com/community/profile/darbyalbers2796/ O estatuto jurídico das criptomoedas é bastante complexo.

  12. Bitcoin traded at a high of $29,600.63 on Jan. 1, 2021. A $1,000 investment in Bitcoin on the first day of the year could have bought 0.0338 BTC. The Federal Government actions began a massive campaign for traders to sell their Bitcoin holdings. If you purchase a large amount of Bitcoin, you may be able to capitalize on a market surge and sell your coins for a much higher value when there are lots of buyers. There’s also a slight possibility that Bitcoin will truly become the currency of the future or a more popularly traded asset, and you could hopefully generate returns from long-term holdings. It should be noted, however, that Bitcoin values are generally decreasing every year. If you are blindly looking up and trading stocks the way 99% of traders are, you are missing on HUGE potential returns. Even new traders who started following this options trading strategy instantly began seeing returns they wouldn’t have had otherwise. With even two trades per month with this strategy, you will start seeing the difference in your trading account. Don’t waste any more time “guessing” and “getting lucky”.

Bitcoin has shown how programs running on networks of computers can be harnessed to securely conduct payments, within and between countries, without relying on avaricious financial institutions that charge high fees. For migrant workers sending remittances back to their home countries, for instance, such fees are a major burden. Technologies that make payments cheaper, quicker and easier to track would benefit consumers and businesses, facilitating both domestic and international commerce.
