The Santa Monica Playhouse is presenting the musical Dolls! Not Your Usual Love Story through Sept. 25.

Performances are scheduled at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 6:30 p.m. Sundays at the playhouse, 1211 Fourth St., Santa Monica.

Dolls! Not Your Usual Love Story is described as a “musical unveiling of the remarkable secret life of the dolls we left behind,” including the handsome Tin Soldier, the ephemeral Music Box Dancer, the ever-smiling Raggedy Girl, the cracked (literally and figuratively) Porcelain Victoriana, and the anatomically incorrect Fashion Doll.

The musical was written by Evelyn Rudie and Chris DeCarlo and is directed by DeCarlo.

The cast features Jessica Erin Bennett, Serena Dolinsky, Melissa Gentry, Annie Mackay, Nancy Dobbs Owen, Garett Stevens, Troy Titus-Adams, Rudie and DeCarlo.

Costumes and design concept are by Ashley Hayes.

Tickets are $26 for general admission, or $22.50 for students, teachers, seniors and members of the military. Special discounts for groups of eight or more.

For reservations and group sales, the Playhouse Box Office at (310)-394-9779 ext 1.
