There's a drinking fountain on both floors ... no need to buy the expensive bottled water.

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. Based on the original Marx Brothers Broadway hit and film classic, this contemporary adaptation of Animal Crackers is an outrageous, rollicking, laugh-out-loud musical comedy.
