ABOUT THE SHOW

This college romp at the cusp of the Roaring Twenties by two world-class musicians is your chance to go back to those happy days of early Broadway.

The young ladies at Clifton College are very demure... they only invite their brothers to visit them. It seems, however, that they have a lot of “brothers”!

When Nancy gets engaged to Polly’s brother, her guardian forces her to abandon him for an arranged marriage. The fiance is not so easily put off, but arrives too late to stop the wedding. Is all lost? Well, a lot can happen between “I do” and the honeymoon!

This revival by the Comic Opera Guild will be presented in concert style, and result in the first recording ever made of this delightful show.
