She Loves Me Presented by Tucson Youth Group
(Tucson, AZ – November 13, 2009) Arizona Youth Chamber Ensemble and Beowulf Alley Theatre present the romantic musical comedy, She Loves Me. Still relevant today, this old-world, nostalgic musical comedy is the fifth adaptation of the play Parfumerie by Hungarian playwright Miklos Laszlo, following the 1940 James Stewart-Margaret Sullavan film The Shop around the Corner and the 1949 Judy Garland-Van Johnson musical version In the Good Old Summertime. It would surface yet again in 1998 as the Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan feature film You’ve Got Mail. This production of She Loves Me is appropriate for ages 6 years and over.

The plot revolves around Budapest shop employees Georg Nowack (played by Hunter Hnat) and Amalia Balash (played by Julie Sandfort). The two, despite being strongly at odds with each other at work, are unaware that each is the other’s secret pen pal, having met through lonely-hearts ads. The story ends on Christmas Eve with the endearing and uplifting sense of possibility often felt during the holiday season.
