About the Show

A classic musical based on the play "Charley's Aunt" by Brandon Thomas.

Story: Charley and Jack invite Kitty and Amy to lunch under the supervision of Charley's aunt, Donna Lucia, but when she doesn't show up, he dresses as her to ensure the girls can visit. However, they've brought their own chaperone, a man who soon falls in love with this "aunt." When the real they run into even more trouble and have to think (and change) fast to get out of it.
