WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Gripped by The Great Depression, America gives birth to a brutal new form of entertainment: the dance marathon. Prize money (and free meals for the duration of the contest) keeps desperate people dancing ... for days, weeks, months. Vaudevillians, suddenly unable to find a paying audience, flock to this vicious new sport, hoping their talents will induce people to throw spare change at the stage; and June, a child star who made the mistake of growing up, finds herself dancing on the edge of physical and mental collapse. Marathon '33 is a grand story of a dance marathon where down-on-their luck vaudevillians and other lost souls spend over 3000 hours dancing for the cherished $1500 prize. OPENING NIGHT: Saturday, September 16th at 7:00 P.M.
