Coe College will present the rousing musical "Leader of the Pack," with performances scheduled for Nov. 3-5 and 9-11 in Dows Theatre. The performances will begin at 7:30 p.m., with the exception of the Sunday, Nov. 5 show, which starts at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $12 for general admission, $10 for students and seniors. Tickets may be purchased online at coe.edu/boxoffice, at the door, or by calling the Coe College Box Office at 319-399-8600, Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

A musical that looks back to a very different time in the U.S., "Leader of the Pack" centers on the life and work of one of the most successful songwriters of the 1950s, Ellie Greenwich. A rare woman amongst the male-dominated world of Tin Pan Alley, Greenwich was responsible for such hits as "Chapel of Love," "Hanky Panky" and, of course, "Leader of the Pack."

Written by Ellie Greenwich, Anne Beatts and Jack Heifner, "Leader of the Pack" is directed by Coe Theatre Professor Dennis Barnett and Music Professors Michelle Perrin Blair and Loralee Songer. The musical will feature Coe students on stage and in the orchestra, in a wonderful performing arts collaboration.

Of special note, an ASL interpreter will be available by request for deaf patrons for the matinee performance on Sunday, Nov. 5. To request an interpreter, please contact Professor Barnett at dbarnett@coe.edu or 319-399-8689 during the week prior to the performance.

For more information, please call 319-399-8600 or visit theatre.coe.edu.
