A musical revue placed smack in the middle of the 1950s, The Taffetas goes fishing for smiles with song-baited hooks during a string of performances drenched in nostalgia. Unabashed toe tapping sweeps through the RMTC Cabaret Theatre as the play’s four sisters chase their dream of singing on a nationally televised talent show. Sporting curly updos, elegant dresses, and eyes twinkling behind vintage horn-rimmed glasses, the old-fashioned quartet leads a tuneful traipse down memory lane by belting out such timeless classics as “Mr. Sandman,” “Lollipop,” and “Fly Me to the Moon.”
Red Mountain Theatre Company’s roots stretch back to 1979, when the University of Alabama’s James Hatcher established the Summerfest Musical Theatre. With more than 30 years of history now tucked behind its curtain, the company continues to lure well-known national performers and local talent to its stage by creating authentic musical theater and filling stagehands’ pockets with candy.
