Set in the French Riviera during the booming 1920s, The Boy Friend weaves the charming tale of Polly, a girls’ finishing-school student looking for love. Written in 1953, the show’s golden-age musical numbers tickle ears with upbeat tunes while Polly deals with being the only girl at her posh school without a boyfriend, falls in love with a poor delivery boy, and reconciles her feelings with her prominent social position. Grand Canyon University’s theater students involve themselves with every aspect of the production, from constructing a beautiful set to diving into full-scale song-and-dance sequences that bring the glee of the Roaring Twenties pastiche to sequined-and-fringed life. Ethington Theatre’s cozy 311-seat, zero-trapdoor space encourages an immediate connection between the audience and actors.
