Holidays at the Center

She Loves Me

DEC 3 - 4 & 9 - 11, 2021 / 7:30 PM
DEC 5 & 12, 2021 / 3 PM

Perfumery shop clerks Amalia and Georg don’t see eye to eye. After both respond to a “lonely hearts advertisement,” they now live for the love letters that they exchange ... but the identity of their admirers remains unknown. Join Amalia and Georg as they try to solve the mystery of their true loves. One of the most charming musicals ever written, SHE LOVES ME is a warm, romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old-world elegance.

Book by Joe Masteroff, Music by Jerry Bock,
Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick.
