A Musical Comedy

Rah! Rah! Rah! Youthful energy abounds in this signature Goodspeed musical filled with Roaring 20s nostalgia, plenty of laughter and rousing dance numbers. Anticipation builds on the Tait College campus as game day approaches but the football hero must first pass a big exam in order to play. When he unexpectedly falls for his tutor, romance blooms and hijinks ensue. With songs like "You’re the Cream in My Coffee," "The Varsity Drag," and "Life Is Just a Bowl of Cherries," it’s fun for everyone!

A brilliant production with a magnificent cast. I'm sorry I saw the final performance of the show because I would have loved to see it again, it was that good.

Absolutely brilliant revival and send-up of a 1920's musical. Worth seeing again for Babe alone! Miss Faye is the real deal.

What a wonderful, heartwarming show! Very upbeat; funny; I couldn't keep my feet still - wanted to get up on the stage and dance with them. The cast was perfect for their roles. Excellent choreography. I'd even go see it again.
