If you are a fan of Mad Men and other shows that embrace the swinging energy of the mid-century, Promises, Promises is the show for you.

The show follows a young, ambitious accountant for a New York insurance company named Chuck Baxter as he climbs the ladder by allowing the firm’s executives to use his midtown apartment for extramarital love affairs. Trouble occurs when Chuck discovers that the object of his own affection, Fran Kubelik, is having a rendezvous at his place with his manager, J.D. Sheldrake.

The musical Promises, Promises was nominated for four Tony Awards. Based on the 1960 Oscar-winning film The Apartment, this raucous comedy features a book by Broadway legend Neil Simon with songs by the powerhouse composing team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Songs include popular hits of the 60s such as “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again”, “A House is Not a Home”, “I Say a Little Prayer” and the title song “Promises, Promises”.

The production of Promises, Promises will be performed April 16, 17, 18 at 8:00 pm and April 18 and 19 at 2:00 pm, in the Oak Room of the Leawood Community Center at Leawood City Hall. Seating is limited and advance tickets are strongly recommended for all performances! Advance tickets are on sale at the Parks and Recreation Desk on the lower level of Leawood City Hall for only $5.00 per person. Cash or checks only please.
