The Pajama Game
The Fair Oaks Theatre Festival opens with an old favorite, the 1954 romantic, The Pajama Game. Director Bob Irvin plays it straight with this popular, somewhat dated musical comedy about romance and a strike for a 7.5-cent-per-hour raise among workers at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory. Musical highlights include “Hey There,” “Steam Heat” and “Hernando's Hideaway.” F, Sa, Su 8:30pm. Through 7/21. $5-$15. Veterans Memorial Amphitheatre, 7991 California Ave. in Fair Oaks; (916) 966-3683; www.fairoakstheatrefestival.com.
