Recommended for grade schools.
Fun on 42nd Street has everything you could ask for in a musical comedy. Set during the Depression, this spunky spoof of a backstage musical features a down-on-his-luck director, a temperamental star, some dimwitted gangsters, a throng of high-kicking chorus girls, several overworked seamstresses, and we’ll even throw in some clowns. As the show begins, we find our gangsters getting set for a heist, but things are heating up so they figure they need a disguise.
What better place to find one than a rundown theater, struggling to open the musical A Walk through the Tulips. That’s when the fun begins! The gangsters snatch the all-important costumes for the Act 1 finale on the very day the show is scheduled to open. Without those costumes, this musical is sure to flop, and it’s the breadline for everyone. Between tantrums and tulip skirts, there’s never a dull moment.

Oh my goodness! This show is amazing! I loved being a part of it. The clowns are the best comedic relief from the the temperamental Star, Lenore Pickford. The gangsters are the best! The frazzled director and his ready to help assistant have their hands full with the dancers and seamstresses. I love this show!
