Aberdeen High Scnool musical department will present the musical "Nice Work If You Can Get It" on Friday, Saturday and Monday, May 8, 9 and 11 in the high school auditorium. All shows begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults and $7 for children 12 and under.

Set in the 1920s, "Nice Work If You Can Get It" is the story of charming and wealthy playboy Jimmy Winter, played by Chandler Foster, who meets rough female bootlegger Billie Bendix, played by Madison Behrend, the weekend of his wedding. Jimmy, who has been married three (or is it four?) times before, is preparing to marry Eileen Evergreen, played by Carissa Settle-myer, a self-obsessed modern dancer. Thinking Jimmy and Eileen will be out of town, Billie and her gang hide cases of alcohol in the basement of Jimmy's Long Island mansion. But when Jimmy, his wife-to-be and her prohibitionist family show up at the mansion for the wedding, Billie and her cohorts pose as servants, causing hijinks galore.

"Nice Work If You Can Get It" is a feel-good musical, complete with dance numbers and an unlikely, love story between Jimmy and Billie. "Nice Work If You Can Get It" is a lighthearted crowd pleaser set to the backdrop of classic Gershwin hits like "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "Fascinating Rhythm."
