First Date Fun at SCC Musical

First Date A Musical Comedy

Musical hilarity ensues at First Date, a Scottsdale Community College (SCC) musical production that runs from Nov. 8 through Nov. 16.

When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner. As the date unfolds in real time, the couple quickly finds that they are not alone on this unpredictable evening.

“This is a hysterical, adults-only musical about a first blind date,” said director Polly Chapman. “And about all the baggage we carry along to all new relationships...family, friends, ex-partners and all the rest.”

Chapman and music director Beth Livingston Hakes have been working together for more than 10 years with SCC students who not only perform in the production, but are responsible for the set design, costumes, lighting, props and sound.

First Date was written by Austin Winsberg with music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 8-9, and Nov. 15-16. Admission is free and open to the public. Due to the mature themes, this is an adults-only show. Seating is on a first-come first-served basis. Reserve your tickets at Eventbrite.
