Shouldn't it be "The Smell of the Greasepaint and the Roar of the Crowd''?

Not in Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse's 1964 musical "The Roar of the Greasepaint and the Smell of the Crowd,'' where everything in life keeps on getting changed.

The Worcester County Light Opera Company, 21 Grandview Ave., Worcester, opens its 2013-14 season on Sept. 27, with a production of this rarely performed but intriguing show, which has such classic songs as "Who Can I Turn To?'' and "On a Wonderful Day Like Today.''

The musical satirizes the English class system via a never-ending game in a music hall setting. The WCLOC cast includes seven young girls, several of whom have recently emerged from its Children's Summer Workshop and are making their first foray into the adult theater season. The lead performers are Dan Kelly, Todd Yard, Rachel Savage, Lisa Tierney, Pedro Figueroa and Dan Biggins. Yard directs and choreographs, with musical direction by John Leslie.

Performances are 8 p.m. Sept. 27 and 28, and Oct. 4, 5, 11 and 12; 2 p.m. Sept. 29 and Oct. 6 and 13. Tickets are $20; $17 students and seniors.; (508) 753-4383.
