COLLEGEVILLE — The Perkiomen Valley High School Drama Club will be presenting the musical “Funny Girl” April 5-7. All performances will be held at Perkiomen Valley Middle School East on Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 6:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are sold in advance or at the door and are given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.

“Funny Girl” takes everyone back to the glitz and glamour of Vaudeville shows through the life of Fanny Brice, a Broadway extraordinaire. This production tells the story of Fanny and the struggles of being a Follies star married to a gambler in the time period of World War I.

“Funny Girl” consists of some of the most eye-catching costuming the high school has ever seen. The original Broadway production, as well as the movie, featured Barbara Streisand as Fanny and were produced by Ray Stark, the son-in-law of Ms. Brice.
