Myers Dinner Theatre takes audience to a little corner shop with 'She Loves Me!'

The third production of Myers Dinner Theatre’s 22nd anniversary season will be the “scented” case of mistaken identity, She Loves Me, opening June 8 at 6:30, and running through June 30.

Considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written, She Loves Me is a warm, romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old world elegance. 

Set in a 1930’s European perfumery, She Loves Me tells the tale of shop clerks Amalia and Georg, who more often than not, don’t see eye to eye.  After both respond to a “lonely hearts advertisement,” in the newspaper, they now live for the love letters that they exchange. 

Join Amalia and Georg to discover the identity of their true loves…and all of twists and turns along the way!  She Loves Me features a lush score with music by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof)  and a book by Joe Masteroff (Cabaret).  She Loves Me was nominated for five Tony Awards in 1964, and the 1993 Broadway Revival won the Olivier & Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Revival of a Musical, as well as the 1994 Critics Circle Award for Best Musical. 

This intimate and touching musical will be directed and choreographed by MDT Artistic Director, Jeremy Littlejohn, with Music Direction by Griff Bludworth of Cincinnati, Ohio, who is making his Myers Dinner Theatre debut.

She Loves Me stars MDT Newcomers Josh Bernaski of Chicago as Georg and Jocelyn Lonquist of New York as Amalia.  Both are making their Myers Dinner Theatre debut. 

They will be joined at “Maraczek’s Parfumerie,” by an ensemble of talent composed of both fresh and familiar faces, including Cody Davis of Chicago as Steven Kodaly, Mark Fishback of Indianapolis as Mr. Maraczek, and Matthew C. Scott of Pennsylvania as Ladislov Sipos.  Alli Ryan Motley, last seen as Sandra in All Shook Up at MDT will play Ilona Ritter and Josh Breece will return to MDT for the first time since 2010 to portray Arpad Laszlo. 

Rounding out the Ensemble will be Abigail Estes of Hillsboro, Isabella Ibanez of North Carolina, James Jiggetts of Virginia and James B. Mernin of New Jersey.
