Foothill Music Theatre and the Foothill College Theatre Arts Department present Damn Yankees, the Tony Award-winning musical, Thursdays through Sundays, July 26–18, in the Smithwick Theatre at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills.
Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd trades his soul to the Devil for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. He becomes young baseball sensation Joe Hardy, and transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life he's left behind. The show features a memorable Richard Adler and Jerry Ross score, including "Heart," "Shoeless Joe" and "Whatever Lola Want, Lola Gets".
Evening performances are July 26, 27, Aug. 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 15, 16 and 17 at 8 p.m. Sunday performances on July 28, Aug. 4, 11 and 18 are at 2 p.m.
