Tracy Notes About This Show

The fun of designing the clothes for this show lies in the jokes and sight gags. The angels' opening dresses are specifically designed to allow them to pose for the photographers as they board the ship, and suggest the wings that angels ought to have. The "Fred and Ginger" influence is certainly there, and the influence of the glamorous part of the 1930's is everywhere! Please note that there are three versions of this script with some changes in character names and other details that may vary from the specifics of our Showplot™, but should not impact your ability to order what you need for your production. Questions? Need help? Call or email us.

Challenges

You'll need a "trick" fur coat for Mrs. H which has a cutout of a beard which Billy wears as a disguise.
