Theatre Department premieres musical The Boy Friend on Feb. 9

January 25, 2018

Anoka-Ramsey Community College presents The Boy Friend, a romantic spoof of 1920s musical comedies, starting Friday, Feb. 9, 7:30 pm in the Coon Rapids Campus Performing Arts Center. The play is set to run for five shows. Tickets are $8 for the general public.

The Boy Friend tells the story of English heiress, Polly, who is longing for only one thing: a boyfriend. Polly's father, convinced that any boy who isn't wealthy will court Polly strictly for her financial situation, forbids her to engage any potential suitors. Honoring his wishes, Polly explains to Tony, the messenger boy with whom she's fallen in love, that she is no rich girl. This is just the tip of the mistaken identity iceberg, as love proceeds to find its way charmingly through nearly every member of the cast and bring them all to a happy ending.
