Play w/ Music

A wildly hilarious old time melodrama with music! You'll get a good idea of the hilarity by reading over the list of songs which include: "No Mother to Guide Her" and "The Villain Still Pursued Her." Stafford Blackman lures Nellie Quackenbush, innocent farmer's daughter, to the big city for the purpose of wedlock (so she thinks!). But when Nell gets there, she senses he "won't do right by Nell" and flees while she is still "pure as the driven snow" returning to the farm and the arms of her country sweetheart, Noble Hart. There's several sub romances running through the story. It's all screamingly funny, easy to cast and produce.

A ideal feature item in a variety show or revue. Each book contains the full text with stage directions and the piano score of all the music (No orchestrations available).

We are not talking great drama here.  This is a frivolous bit of fluff that is easy to produce and a great deal of fun. One set, small cast (but you can add as many to the chorus as you want), songs are easy to learn -- all in all a fun, family experience.  Even teenagers in the "whatever" mindset will have fun with this.
