This year’s KOGT Treasure Hunt sponsored by Sabine Federal Credit Union has a Broadway theme. Correctly identifying the Broadway show will get you closer to the hidden treasure. You are looking for an Orange colored certificate that is approximately 5×7 inches. No digging or climbing is required.
CLUE 1: Monday
Park yourself in the front row and enjoy this story with a contemporary setting based on a very famous work written by William Shakespeare. The Jets and the Sharks have replaced the Montagues and the Capulets whose feud leads to tragedy for two young lovers who pine for one another, but both end up in a hearse. This musical drama was later made into a popular film and has had three revivals on Broadway in the six decades since its premiere at the Winter Garden Theatre.
CLUE 2: Tuesday
The legend of an honorable king, his beautiful queen, and their court of loyal knights in medieval England is the setting for this musical drama. The producers based the play on the book The Once and Future King by T. H. White. The show opened for the first of 873 performances and two previews at Broadway’s Majestic Theatre on December 3, 1960. This show’s original cast recording was so popular with President John F. Kennedy it came to be associated with his administration.
CLUE 3: Wednesday
In a cramped room on a hot and humid afternoon a football coach, a bigot with a cold, a stockbroker wearing glasses, a disgruntled owner of a delivery service business, a sarcastic salesman and six other guys anxiously try to persuade an architect to their way of thinking. The hero of this story believes he is right and eventually turns the others around to his position. The drama was first produced as a teleplay, then as a film, before premiering on Broadway fifty years later.
CLUE 4: Thursday
This feature was the word for young lovers struggling to get together. A summer romance leads to confusing consequences for Danny and Sandy with their very closest friends. Originally an off-Broadway production with first class contracts this musical opened on Broadway on June 7, 1972 at the Broadhurst Theatre for a then record 3,388 performances. It earned seven Tony Award nominations. A popular feature film with the same one-word title was produced in 1978.
