This lively jazz-age musical follows upper-crust teenager Ursula Morgan in 1929 Boston during the turbulent weeks before the stock market crash. Neglected by her excessive, self-absorbed parents, Ursula encounters a boy named Peter, who is being pursued by the captain of police for a heinous crime he may or may not have committed. When Peter offers Ursula the opportunity to run away with him, she takes it and immediately finds herself swept into a seedy underground world of jazz, sex, and a mysterious white powder called Fairy Dust.
This show is intended for audiences ages 14 and older.
Based on the book by B.T. Ryback
