It's the vibrant 1920s, complete with Ziegfeld girls, raccoon coats, ukuleles, goldfish swallowers and gangsters! Polly Pepper, a young flapper, is about to turn eighteen years old and will then inherit an extraordinary diamond necklace. She is planning a wacky birthday party and is inviting all her friends. Buck Wayne, Polly's new boyfriend, wouldn't miss the birthday celebration for anything, even if he has to land his private plane on the lawn of the polo grounds. But watch out, trouble's in the air! Mobsters are planning to grab the necklace and have devised a clever con to crash Polly's party. Thanks to Polly, they're defeated hilariously! Not only does Polly save the necklace, she also saves her aunt from losing money in a confidence scheme and becomes the star of the Ziegfeld Follies... all before she even cuts the cake! Meet terrific characters like Monica Woodsquirrel of Radio Station WWWW atop Hotel Times Square, crimefighter Lieutenant Fluke, Mona of the Crazy Cat Club and "flagpole sitter" Lenny Knickerbocker. The songs are sensational, including "It Has to be Jazz," "Flapper," "Dijja Ever?" and, natch, "Ev'rybody, Charleston." This simple production is filled with lots of small, funny roles. So come on in and take a step into the Roaring Twenties!
