St. Vincent College Performers present ‘The Pajama Game'

Love walks in when the workers walk out during a labor dispute at an Iowa pajama factory.

The musical comedy “The Pajama Game” mines the humor and the drama when the union's feisty female leader and the management-friendly factory supervisor fall for each other.

The St. Vincent College Performers' production of the 1954 musical will run March 15 to 24 in the Performing Arts Center of the Robert S. Carey Student Center on the campus of the college, near Latrobe.

“It is a delightful musical,” says the show's director, Colleen Reilly, who says it includes The romance, comedy and drama. “There are also a number of songs that people will recognize even if they don't know the musical itself — ‘Hernando's Hideaway,' ‘Steam Heat' and, especially, ‘Hey There.' ”

Performances are at 8 p.m. March 15 to 17 and March 22 and 2 p.m. March 24.

Admission: $10. Details: 724-805-2229 or www.stvincent.edu
