Based on Brandon Thomas' "Charley's Aunt"
What do you get when two musical theatre masters adapt one of the most popular and successful farces ever written? A tuneful and hysterically funny classic that’s non-stop entertainment.
Oxford University students Charley and Jack invite the young and winsome Kitty and Amy to lunch under the chaperoning eye of Donna Lucia, Charley's wealthy aunt (it is, after all, 1892). But when Donna Lucia doesn't show, a desperate Charley disguises himself as his aunt so the young ladies can visit, unaware they’ve brought a chaperon of their own: Amy's stuffy uncle, who promptly falls for Charley’s aunt-like charms! Then the real aunt shows up, and it's all downhill from there: quick changes, fast talking, marriage proposals, compromising situations and rowdy hilarity.
“Where’s Charley” features many roles for younger performers, including Charley himself, an excellent opportunity for a young comic actor. The score by Frank Loesser includes the popular audience-participation hit “Once In Love With Amy,” and the book by the legendary “Mr. Abbott” keeps things moving along at his trademark clip.
