The Talent Machine Company brings the musical Cole Porter's "Can-Can" to the stage this August in Annapolis at St. John’s College Key Auditorium. This show features two Annapolis teens, Hanley and Layne Seamen, who were chosen amid rigorous competition of talented young performers from Anne Arundel, Harford, Calvert at St. Mary’s Counties.

Can-Can is the perfect high-energy show about Paris in the 1890s, a time remembered for artists, music, dance and most of all, love. With Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter, the show embodies the lives, loves and pure zest for life of the more Bohemian citizens of Paris. Memorable song and dance numbers include “Never Give Anything Away, C'est Magnifique, Come Along with Me, Live and Let Live, I Am in Love, If You Loved Me Truly, and Montmartre.” This family friendly production is sure to please young and old.

Performances are 8/5 – 8/6 at 7:30, 8/7 at 2:00 and 7:30, 8/11- 8/13 at 7:30 and 8/14 at 2:00.
