A Madcap Musical Comedy Tribute to the 1920s
The Roaring Twenties was such a colorful decade that the unbeatable team of playwright Tim Kelly and musician Bill Francoeur couldn't resist it any longer! Come celebrate the era with them and meet Polly Pepper, a young flapper who really knows how to live in the time of Stutz Bearcat automobiles, Ziegfield girls, raccoon coats, ukuleles, beauty contests, goldfish swallowers and gangsters. Polly's about to turn eighteen and will then inherit a fabulous diamond necklace called the "Ice Garden." Polly is planning a madcap birthday party and is inviting all her pals. However, with a friend like Susan Stuyvesant-Fish, she doesn't need any enemies! Polly's new boyfriend, Buck Wayne, wouldn't miss the birthday bash for anything, even if he has to land his private plane on the lawn of the polo grounds. But there's trouble ahead! Mobsters are planning to grab the necklace. But thanks to Polly, they're defeated in uproarious fashion. Meet fabulous characters like Mona of the Crazy Cat Club, Monica Woodsquirrel of Radio Station WWWW atop Hotel Times Square, crimefighter Lieutenant Fluke and "Flagpole Sitter" Lenny Knickerbocker. Not only does Polly save the necklace, she also saves her aunt from losing money in a confidence scheme and manages to become the star of the Ziegfeld Follies before she even cuts the cake! The songs are sensational, including "The Roaring Twenties," "It Has to be Jazz," "Mona's Moaning Low," "Dijja Ever?" and, natch, "Flapper." set on an open stage, this is a simple production with lots of small but funny roles. Flapper is the "cat's meow," so what are you waiting for? Everybody Charleston their way over to this sure-fire audience pleaser!
