As the River Queen Showboat steams down the
mighty Mississippi river, Captain Lucy is attempting to
open a new theatre season. She not only must earn enough
money to pay her crew and performers, but must also make a
payment on the showboat. But evil thespian Rufus Bilge is
angry for not being cast as Romeo. He plots with his
accomplice, Sadie Larue, to drug young actor, Alex Adonis,
sabotage the show and gain control of the showboat.
Luckily, the dastardly villain is foiled and Alex wins the
lead, as well as the heroine’s heart. This show has
optional songs and is filled with opportunities to add
vaudeville acts to make this a zestful production.
