Through a twisted set of scenarios, confused identities, mismatched lovers, and super-sized characters, this fast-paced farce of a musical sets sail on a path of true hijinks and adventure. Set on and below the deck of a luxury ocean liner, a young love-sick Wall Street broker stows away on the S.S. American in hopes of winning the heart of his beloved. In addition to its title song, this one-of-a-kind family American musical classic includes such mega-hits as “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “Take Me Back to Manhattan,” and “You’re the Top.” The newly-renovated Fisher Auditorium offers the perfect setting as Music Theater and Theater-by-the-Grove return with this period musical romp.
