About the Show

A classic show with a simple story, featuring many recognizable songs.

Story: When a group of teenagers' parents leave to join the dying art of vaudeville, the teens stage a revue to keep from being sent to a work farm. The first show is a bomb, but when a French pilot lands nearby, they are able to get enough publicity to put on a great show and start their own youth center.
