Stage Coach Players

“Sugar,” the Stage Adaptation of the 1960 Golden Globe Winner, “Some Like It Hot,” Opens this Thursday at Stage Coach Players in DeKalb.

“It’s not how long you wait, it’s who you’re waiting for,” at least that’s what Junior tells Sugar in the 1960 Golden Globe-winning comedy, “Some Like It Hot.”

Wait no more!

Stage Coach Players’ production, “Sugar,” the stage adaptation of “Some Like it Hot,”

opens this Thurs., April 12, 2018. Featuring the same memorable characters as the movie, “Sugar” runs Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through April 22, 2018.

Come enjoy the hilarity as two unemployed musicians, bass player Jerry (Patrick Deering) and saxophone player Joe (Stephen Becker), witness the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in Chicago and make a break for it by disguising themselves as women, joining up with the all-female band, Sweet Sue and Her Society Syncopaters, and heading off for Miami. Complications arise with when Joe, now known as Josephine, falls in love with the beautiful band singer, Sugar Kane (Kelly Bolander), who has a slight drinking problem that tends to interfere with her ability to choose a romantic partner wisely. More than anything, Sugar wants to marry a millionaire, which prompts Joe to disguise himself as the man of her dreams. Meanwhile, wealthy and elderly Osgood Fielding, Jr. (Jeffrey Little) is pursuing Daphne, unaware she really is Jerry in drag. As much as he knows he needs to reveal his true gender to his over-amorous paramour, Jerry is beginning to enjoy all the expensive gifts bestowed upon him on a regular basis. Total chaos erupts when Spats and his gang descend upon the hotel and realize who Josephine and Daphne really are.
