Babes in Arms is a classic musical aged back from Broadway’s 1930’s. Filled with charm and noted for its timelessness, this light-hearted and fun musical is the original “Hey-kids-let’s put-on a- show” production.

The musical showcases a group of teenagers, children of out of work vaudevillians, as they stage a show to keep from being sent to a work farm. Their boss promises they can put on the show. When he backs out, the group defiantly decides to continue without him, perform in a barn, and surprisingly, to an audience including a famous director.
