Description

Book by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind

Music and lyrics by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby

Directed by Henry Wishcamper

Hooray for Captain Spaulding! When a celebrated sculpture goes missing from Mrs. Rittenhouse’s fancy house party in honor of African explorer Captain Spaulding, her guests set out to find the thief in a series of madcap antics and exploits.
