The IT Girl

Based on the 1927 Paramount picture It, this jazz-infused musical is a tribute to romantic comedies of the silent film era.  Betty Lou Spence is a smart spunky shop clerk working in the lingerie department at Waltham’s Department Store.  Soon after Waltham’s launches an advertising contest to find a charismatic girl with “IT,” Betty catches the eye of Jonathan Waltham, heir to the family fortune.  What follows is a roller-coaster ride of comedy, music and romance. The music sparkles with bright and catchy melodies.  The dialogue crackles with wit.  The comedy is fast-paced and physical, evoking the slapstick style of silent films.  Join us for an evening of toe-tapping, side-splitting, flamboyant flapper fun!  Don’t miss IT!
