This delightful musical is a story of a feisty flapper headed to New York City to find a job and a wealthy employer to marry, only to fall in love with a penniless paper-clip salesman. Determined to marry the well-heeled man, she sets her sights on him even though he is in love with her roommate. You'll delight in the mysteries that unfold as you follow along while these characters sing, dance, and fumble their way to love!
The musical is a collaborative effort between Sacred Heart School for the Arts and Sacred Heart Academy.
