Rehearsals have been underway for Second Street Players’ fall musical “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change!” Off-Broadway’s phenomenal longest-running musical will open at Riverfront Theatre in Milford to celebrate the modern-day suburban mating game. Audiences will fill the theatre with laughter as the cast explores the joys of dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives, and in-laws.

Directed by Ben Lonski, Magnolia, the musical will run for two consecutive weekends, opening Friday, September 30 and closing Sunday, October 9.

The marvelous cast of four includes Kim Swanstrom from Milford, Amy Stone from Salisbury, Md., Jim Calloway from Harrington and Steven Dow of Wyoming. This cast brings their wonderful voices and tremendous theatre and entertainment backgrounds to Milford for what promises to be a great show.

Debra Passwaters and Carly Jo Hosbach lend talent to the production staff as Assistant Director and Musical Director. “This show is entertaining, funny and an all around good time,” says Ben Lonski. “All couples are sure to see bit of their own relationships in some of these scenes.”
