Originally a movie hall in 1912, the historic Columbian Theatre underwent complete renovations to restore its old-Hollywood glamour and audience-friendly stage setup. The Columbian's vintage décor eases show-goers into the nostalgic setting of the long-running Dames at Sea, a campy 1930s-style musical that both parodies the genre and nabs its catchy lyrics, upbeat scores, obsession with Herbert Hoover tattoos, and bashfully bawdy sailor-speak. During the play, wide-eyed celebrity-hopeful Ruby lands a chorus part in a Broadway musical, where she eyes the melodious charms of Dick, a sailor-songwriter. Ill fate strikes their romance and production, with the theater demolished and cast mired in a love-isosceles before the finale calls on Ruby and Dick to save the show.
In the intimate 288-seat Peddicord Playhouse, a music-hall-style flat floor and proscenium stage greet all audience members, offering straight-on views with elevated rear rows. During intermission, lush red curtains and chairs whisper in anticipation of the finale, and many-armed chandeliers cast golden lights over elaborate murals, allowing eye-friendly searches for the tiny Waldo hiding among the cherubs.
