The CSU Music Department and Opera Fort Collins team up to present this 1925 Broadway musical smash hit for one night only on Friday, July 24 at 7 p.m.

Tony award winning musical and fun, light-hearted story

In this light-hearted musical, Jimmy, a bighearted and charitable millionaire and Sue, his frugal wife, decide to try to turn their ward, Nanette, into a respectable young lady.

The problem is, Nanette has an untapped wild side. When Jimmy finds out that Nanette wants to go to Atlantic City to have a little fun, he agrees to take her (with her chaperone in tow) to his Atlantic City home, Chickadee Cottage. 

Pandemonium ensues when a suitor of Nanette’s; three women Jimmy has innocently been benefactor to; and Jimmy’s wife, Sue, also show up at the cottage.

When and where

The performance takes place in Griffin Concert Hall, University Center for the Arts at 1400 Remington Street. General admission seating begins at 6:30 p.m. and admission is free. 

Parking for events at the University Center for the Arts is available in the CSU parking lot on the west side of College Avenue which can be reached by entrances on Pitkin or Lake Streets. 

Student and Opera Fort Collins vocalists

The fun performance will be directed by students from the Summer Masters in Music Education in Conducting Program. The popular musical, written by Vincent Youmans and Irving Caesar, includes the memorable tunes "Tea for Two" and "I Want to Be Happy" sung by Opera Fort Collins company members, alongside CSU students from the Artist Apprentice Program.  

Make an evening of it
