This show is a throwback to 1920’s New York City when big bands, popular song writing radio shows and creating catchy tunes were all the rage. Set in Tin Pan Alley, June Moon features a wet-behind-the-ears young songwriter named Fred Stevens who sets off by train from Schenectady to NYC to make a name for himself in the world of song writing. Trouble begins when he and his composer partner, Paul, sell a song to a music publisher that becomes a hit. Between the lines Fred finds out who his real friends are and who he truly loves. This is a sweet, romantic drama with lots of music and laughs to counteract the betrayals. Treat yourself and your significant other to an early Valentine’s present by coming to see this little gem of a show.

"Knowledge is power. A person can live without a lot, but to be oblivious, ignorant, or uninformed is to truly live with nothing. There are so many wonderful things you don’t know and all you have to do is ask a question."
-Prince of Questions, played by Lucas Hood in “Sleeping Beauty”, BFA Senior
"There’s a lot of hunger within a character…sometimes you have to bring the hunger out. Blood lust is something almost equitable to addiction. Meat is blood. Blood is life."
