Spotlighting a trio of profes- sional musical comedy perform- ers, Razzle Dazzle is an eclectic collection of musical numbers about the complicated world of show business - featuring classic show tunes as well as some deli- ciously obscure words and music. With topics plucked from the news and no sacred cows left un- sung, Razzle Dazzle takes on Hol- lywood and Times Square. Starring Margaret Allman, Hans Bachmann and Eric C. Pe- terson, Razzle Dazzle 2000 takes aim at both Broadway and Holly- wood in a fast paced cabaret per- formance. The trio was in Re- hoboth Memorial Day for a re- hearsal, with both Bachmann and Peterson using their days off from other Washington, D.C. produc- tions to make the day trip to the beach. The show, produced by Fay J. Productions, in partnership with the Rehoboth Art League, will have performances at 7 and 9:30 p.m., Saturday, June 17, with a 4 p.m. performance Sunday, June 18. For tickets, call the Art League at 227-8408. An edition of Razzle Dazzle, first presented locally in Lewes two years ago, played to sold out houses and rave reviews. Razzle Dazzle 2000 includes music from show biz legends like Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and Andrew Lloyd Weber and songs from shows such as 42nd Street, Annie Get Your Gun, Caberet, and more. The show is directed by Fay Ja- cobs, whose theatrical rdsum6 in- cludes more than 25 years of pro- fessional productions in the Washington, D.C. area.

Ashcraft performs at 6:30 p.m.; all entertainment at the fes- tival is free. A balloon glow is set each night, weather permitting.

Washington, D.C. set designer Don Gardiner will be in town helping once again to turn the Art League's Chambers Studio into an intimate comfortable theater. While most people were disap- pointed with the rainy Memorial Day weekend, Gardiner used the time to get a head start on Razzle Dazzle scenery. According to Jacobs, the Chambers Studio proved to be a great setting for a small produc- tion, with an elevated stage af- fording the audience an excellent view of the actors. "With just a few adjustments and theatrical gels, the same lights used to spot- light artists' models work very well for stage lighting," she said. Early reservations are suggest- ed.
