Someone Save My Baby, Ruth!
or... Foil That Villain!
Billy St. john
When lovely young widow Penny Candy and her baby, Ruth, are taken in by her Aunt Praline, owner of The Sweet Shoppe candy store, little does Penny know both love and danger lie ahead. The villainous Sidney Swindle is determined to buy The Sweet Shoppe as part of his plan to sell the property to the city for America's first subway system. Should Praline refuse his offer, Sidney is prepared to do away with her and her heirs in order to obtain the land at public auction! With the help of his beautiful but less than brilliant cohort in crime, Ada Sourball, the villain sets his evil scheme in motion. The hilarious results include the kidnapping of Baby Ruth, an attempt to burn down The Sweet Shoppe and a wild chase through the audience with the good guys pelting the villains with candy... which the audience can eat, of course! Other characters include Penny's new love and our hero, police officer Ernest Noble, cooks Farron Heit and Cindy Grade and clerks Taffy and Toffee and their boyfriends. You'll have the audience eating out of your hands... literally... in this tasty theatrical treat.
