Babes in Arms

Babes in Arms




The classic 'Hey, kids, let's put on a show!' musical featuring tons of recognizable songs.


Story:

When a group of teenagers' parents leave to join the dying art of vaudeville, the teens stage a revue to keep from being sent to a work farm. The first show is a bomb, but when a French pilot lands nearby, they are able to get enough publicity to put on a great show and start their own youth center.
