Set just before the Great Depression, Edward, a daydreaming businessman, puts his career on the line to pursue his passion of music, but going against the grain brings on the resistance of his fiancée, his family, and the corporate world. Why won’t society just let him be a bum? Come for a good laugh and unforgettable music in this high-energy comedy featuring singing, dancing bums and jazzy hits such as “Half-Eaten Burger”, “The Corporate Gods”, and “Boring, Serious Businessman”.
This 2023 (fifth) production, with a new script and never-before-heard music, will be performed by the Great Hall Youth Theatre.

We loved this play and enjoyed experiencing the loyal theater. The passion and dedication of the actors was so evident! Main character, Edward, was phenomenal. We came to see our landlord’s daughter, Ava. She played Edward’s mom and an office worker. We were so happy for the opportunity to see her do her thing on stage. So fun!
Thanks to the entire crew for organizing and putting on this event! We loved it all.
