The Jazz Age lives on in The Boy Friend, a light romantic spoof of 1920’s musical comedy. Set against the backdrop of the French Riviera, this romantic spoof of 1920’s musical comedies tells the story of English heiress, Polly, who is longing for only one thing: a boyfriend. Polly’s father, convinced any boy who isn’t wealthy will court Polly strictly for her financial situation, forbids her to engage any potential suitors. Honoring his wishes, Polly explains to Tony, the messenger boy with whom she’s fallen in love, that she is no rich girl. This is just the tip of the mistaken identity iceberg as love proceeds to charmingly find its way through nearly every member of the cast and bring them all to a happy ending.
This production, by our teens, is dedicated to Josh Brawn.
