Theater-goers have one last weekend to take in Portage Community Theater’s presentation of Dames at Sea at the Portage Yacht Club at 1370 Indiana 249 in Portage. The show runs at 8 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 26, and Saturday, Aug. 27, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28. New York salutes Hollywood in this affectionate spoof of the Busby Berkeley-Harry Warren an Al Dubin-Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler-style film musical of the 30s. The setting is the deck of a battleship where Ruby, the talented tap-dancer from the sticks climbs aboard a youngster and disembarks a star! The show is being floated because its songwriter, Dick happens to be a sailor and is able, therefore, to offer an alternative venue when under pressure from leading lady Mona. Unfortunately life on the ocean wave doesn’t quite agree with Mona so Ruby takes over and she and Dick set off on a long voyage together. The cast: Ruby, Kelli Manigrasso; Dick, Jared Morehouse; Mona Kent, Lisa Woodruff;

Lucky, Craig Golbesky; Joan, Kristen De Boer; Hennessey/Captain, Trevor Bruss; Chorus: Laurie Parpart, Catherine Danko and Elise Riddell. Tickets $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. For more information, visit
