50th Anniversary Performance!
A modern version of the first show performed on the SMSC mainstage in 1968,
The Servant of Two Masters.

In 1960s England, likeable but clueless Francis gets fired from his pop band, then inadvertently gains not one, but two new jobs and new bosses.  His efforts to keep them from finding out about each other are complicated by secret identities, hidden connections, love triangles, and more, resulting in wildly hilarious farce and slapstick comedy. 

James Corden won a Tony award for his performance as Francis on Broadway, and critics call the show "The most glorious comedy on the plant" and "splendidly silly"!
