This timeless story begins with Spanky, who is the president of the "He-Man Woman Haters Club" with many school-aged boys from around
the neighborhood as members. His best friend, Alfalfa, has been chosen as the driver for the club's prize-winning go-kart, called "The Blur", in
the annual Soap Box Derby style race. However, when the announcement is made, Alfalfa is nowhere to be found. The boys catch Alfalfa in the
company of Darla -- "a girl!" Alfalfa isn't like his friends because he's in love with Darla, and unfortunately threatens the very existence of their
"boys only" club. The club's members try their hardest to break the two apart, eventually causing their beloved clubhouse to burn down. Darla
is mistakenly led by her girlfriends to believe Alfalfa feels ashamed of her, so she turns her attentions to Waldo, the new rich kid whose father
is an oil tycoon. Further trouble ensures when their prized go-cart "The Blur" is stolen by local neighborhood bullies Butch and Woim.
This wonderful comedy offers numerous roles for both boys and girls with lots of dialogue for everyone.  So join us for this fun summer

The Roaring Twenties was such a colorful decade who could resist it!  Come celebrate the era and meet Polly Pepper, a young flapper who
really knows how to live in the time of Stutz Bearcat automobiles, Ziegfield girls, raccoon coats, ukuleles, beauty contests, goldfish swallowers,
and gangsters.  Polly’s about to turn 18 and will then inherit a fabulous diamond necklace called the ’Ice Garden.’ She’s planning a madcap
birthday party and inviting all her pals.  However, with a friend like Susan Stuyvesant-Fish, she doesn’t need any enemies! Polly’s new
boyfriend, Buck Wayne, wouldn’t miss the birthday bash for anything, even if he has to land his private plane on the lawn of the polo
grounds.  But there’s trouble ahead!  Mobsters are planning to grab the necklace. But thanks to Polly, they’re defeated in uproarious fashion.
