The show tunefully follows an itinerant fruit seller and pickpocket who discovers he is heir to the Earl of Hareford. His aunt aims to transform him into an aristocrat, but her efforts are blunted because the Cockney hero won’t forsake his love, the girl of the title. The production features more than a dozen hummable tunes with a variety of dance numbers. 

Senior Ben Horsburgh, who plays the lead, Bill Snibson, is well known to AHS audiences, having appeared in “Hello Dolly!,” “Crazy for You” and “Wonderful Town.” Violet de Besche, who plays his girl, Sally Smith, is a transfer student in her first year at AHS.

“Me and My Girl” will be performed on Friday, April 5, 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, April 6, 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, April 7, 2 p.m. Tickets $15 for adults and $10 for students, are available through cast members, at the AHS main office, by calling 781-316-3589, at the door and online >>
