Garden City High School presented its spring musical, The Pajama Game, an upbeat production of Richard Bissell’s 1954 Broadway musical (score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross) that was made into a movie in 1957 starring Doris Day and John Raitt. In addition to the regular shows, Garden City’s senior citizens were welcomed to a free pre-show buffet dinner hosted by the Garden City Teachers’ Association and a special performance of the musical.
The Pajama Game story unfolded as Babe (Alexandra Lambraia) and the factory workers at the Sleep Tite pajama factory demanded a raise from the new supervisor, Sid Sorokin (Andrew Petersen), and factory owner Mr. Hasler (Daniel McElroy). The Garden City School District wishes to congratulatedirector Katie Sckalor and producer Stephen Mayo, technical director Michael Stano, orchestra and musical director James McCrann, choreographer Jeanne Kennedy, production assistant Angela McLaughlin, student stage manager Jennifer Leary, and all the talented students in the cast, crew and pit orchestra.
