— Forney-Hughes said she chose the play because it had always been a favorite of hers.

“I think it’s going to be a really fun show. People might not recognize the title, but I hope they take a chance and come out for an enjoyable evening,” Forney-Hughes said.

Add a healthy dose of some musical bookies and a couple of persistent policemen, and you have a recipe for some great shenanigans, Forney Hughes said.

Some favorite musical numbers featured in the play are; “Just in Time,” “The Party’s Over,” “I’m Goin’ Back,” “Better Than a Dream,” “Drop That Name” and “A Simple Little System.”

The show will open for a special preview on April 18, at 7 p.m. Adult admission is $5, and student admission is $3.

More performances will be held on April 19 and 20 at 7 p.m. An afternoon performance will be held on April 21 at 3 p.m. Adult tickets are $10, student tickets are $5, and a special family rate is $25.

“Bells Are Ringing” was nominated for a Tony for Best Musical in 1957. Judy Holliday won the Tony for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Ella Peterson and went on to star in the 1960 film adaptation, opposite Dean Martin.
