Tracy Notes About This Show

We based our costumes on the original work of Willa Klim, who won the Tony for best costumes that year. When the Hampton Playhouse won the rights to produce the show, one of the original chorus dancers joined us to be the dance captain for the summer production, and generously shared her backstage pictures and first hand knowledge with us. We also have available: SET OF SIGNS carried by Z's Fav to announce the scenes, SUITCASES that spell two different messages - one on each side, a SCRIM PORTRAIT OF WILL HIMSELF, and numerous parts that come with the costumes, but may be rented separately, such as the TAMBOURINE HATS that are part of the costumes for the CAMPAIGN.

Plot Synopsis

Will Rogers was a unique American who, though he died almost sixty years ago, remains a beloved figure remembered for his humor, his wisdom, and his just plain common sense. At the heart of his populist philosophy was his most famous statement: "I never met a man I didn't like." Rogers became the biggest, most popular, and highest paid star of every existing medium of his time--stage, screen, radio, newspapers, and public appearances. In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that he was the greatest star this country has ever produced. -Peter Stone, 1994 (TAMS)
