"Sugar," with book by Peter Stone, music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Bob Merrill, is the Tony Award-nominated musical based on the film "Some Like It Hot."

"Sugar" chronicles the zany lives of two musicians of the Prohibition era who witness a gang slaying. Forced to disguise themselves as women, they join an all-female orchestra. Memorable music numbers like "Penniless Bums" and "Doin' It for Sugar" are accompanied by the choreography of faculty member Ashley Hyers.

Greensboro College's Department of Theatre seeks to provide a strong foundation in theatre while allowing the student to emphasize in a particular area such as directing, acting, or arts administration.

The coursework is integrated with the production work to provide a better understanding of the many facets of the theatre. Required participation on stage or backstage on all theatre productions allows the techniques and theories that are examined in the classroom and the laboratory to be tested in a performance setting.

For more information on the program, contact David Schram, Jefferson-Pilot Professor of Theatre, at 336-272-7102, ext. 5243, or email
