Did you know, a century ago you might have risked being Shanghied right here in Astoria – kidnapped “for the crew of a ship by unscrupulous means, as by force or the use of liquor or drugs” (www.dictionary.com)? Luckily, today, you’re just invited to an evening of fun and laughter. The Astor Street Opry Company transformed tales of the city’s sometimes infamous past into vaudeville, with the 33rd annual production of its original musical melodrama: Shanghaied in Astoria.
Will Miss Virginia Sweet be rescued by her Norwegian hero? How will he outsmart her guardian? Get ready to cheer the heroes, and throw plenty of popcorn at the villains while you enjoy a less than historical, but rather hysterical, performance. The curtain is going up on this summer’s production, so don’t wait to reserve your weekend getaway at Clementine’s Bed & Breakfast. We promise a fun-filled evening, plus all the other entertainment the Astoria area offers, from fine dining and shopping to outdoor adventures.
