FreeFall Theatre’s 2021-22 season opened last weekend and if you love old-timey, classic musicals, the St. Pete company’s production of “Dames at Sea”—running through Sunday, Nov. 21—is for you (just ask Creative Loafing Tampa Bay’s theater critic).

I mean who doesn’t love a tap-dancing story about a Broadway bound girl just off the bus that falls for a Broadway bound guy just off a boat? Think “Anything Goes,” cute sailor outfits and all. 

This is FreeFall’s first show since early 2020, and the theater asks “patrons who are not yet fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to choose not to attend the theatre until you are vaccinated.” Masks are also required. 

Tickets are $45-$55 with shows at 7 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. There are no performances Sunday, Oct. 31, Thursday, Nov. 4 and Friday, Nov. 12.

For more information, plus a full list of COVID-19 protocols, go to freefalltheatre.com.

Theater is expensive, and Creative Loafing Tampa Bay devotes editorial budget to writing about it because it’s essential to cover local playwrights, actors and the venues that support them.
