“Make Believe” – Show Boat

Music: Jerome Kern   Lyrics: Oscar Hammerstein II

Make believe you are living in the late 1800’s today working on a show boat on the Mississippi River with this classic musical based on the novel by Edna Ferber.  One of the many alluring aspects about theatre is its unabashed encouragement to make believe, an invitation extended to a young lady by a gambler in this romantic number.
