Nell knows where Grandpa Ninny hid a pirate treasure. Seventeenth century pirates, nineteenth century mountain dwellers and a modern day I.R.S. agent make hilarious attempts to get her to reveal its whereabouts in this zany audience pleaser that is full of hand clapping show stoppers. The finale, which combines a hideous fate for the prime villain and the triumph of true love will have your audience on its feet cheering with delight. Toe tappingly tuneful and very, very humorous, this is excellent comic entertainment for the entire family.
