Blank Canvas Theatre offers a break from the typical holiday show with the Cleveland Premiere of Debbie Does Dallas: The Musical, adapted by Erica Schmidt, conceived by Susan L. Schwartz and composed by Andrew Sherman, tonight, November 30th - December 22nd, running Friday & Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 7pm.
The show is the coming-of-age story of an all-American small-town sweetheart named Debbie Benton. Debbie is captain of her high-school cheerleading team, but she dreams of making it to the big time by becoming a Texas Cowgirl Cheerleader. The only thing that stands between her and the realization of her dream is bus fare to the big city: Dallas. Debbie enlists her teammates, Lisa, Roberta, Donna and Tammy. The girls form a company called Teen Services and get jobs, but they quickly realize minimum-wage jobs just don't pay enough. Luckily, Debbie's boss, Mr. Greenfelt, has an idea how the girls can raise enough money in time. A ridiculous musical parody based on the 1978 pornographic film Debbie Does Dallas. However, unlike the original movie, the musical does not contain any actual sex or nudity.
