          The musical Crazy For You is about a banker (Sam Greaves as Bobby) in New York City who yearns to be in show business, but is sent to foreclose on a property in Nevada, which happens to be a theatre.  The banker falls in love with the only girl in town, (Kasey Karoll as Polly) who happens to own the theatre, but is rejected when she finds out that he is from the bank. He comes up with a crazy idea to impersonate a famous producer and put on a show to raise the money to save the theatre.  Things get really interesting when the real producer (Curtis Druck as Zangler) shows up. Will the theatre be saved? Will the banker get his girl? I guess you will just have to come find out.
