In its season finale, Opera House Theatre Company brings The Most Happy Fella to the Main Stage at Thalina Hall in historic downtown Wilmington, NC. Tony, a middle-aged vineyard owner, has everything a guy needs to call himself happy -- except the love of a good woman. All that changes when he meets Rosabella, a young waitress in San Francisco. He falls for her at first sight, but she doesn’t remember him.  After months of exchanging letters she asks Tony to send her a picture, but he is afraid she will not love him as he is, so he sends a picture of his young, handsome foreman, Joe. Misunderstandings, mistakes, and a May-December love story fraught with deception yet full of romance unfold until the show’s happy conclusion. Frank Loesser (Guys and Dolls, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) created his masterpiece with this touching love story. Full of soaring romantic melodies and catchy show-stoppers (including Standing on the Corner and Big D), The Most Happy Fella is a melodic and lyric triumph. PLEASE NOTE: The Sunday performance is a matinee beginning at 3pm.
