Based on the book by Sally Benson. Adapted by Christopher Sergel.
Cast: 7m., 9w. It's rare for a play to capture truly a special moment in time, a particular moment in the lives of some real people. What makes this play so exceptional is not only that it does this so beautifully but that it's done with fun, excitement, and some broad comedy scenes that often stop the show with laughter! Four attractive sisters are all blazing with excitement over the wonderful World's Fair that is about to open right there in St. Louis. The girls are also in a state about the love life of their only brother, whom they suspect of ditching his sweet hometown girl for a snob from the East. In the midst of the sisters' humorous maneuvers to rule (or ruin) their brother's new romance, Father finally breaks in with his announcement. He's been offered a better job in New York! This will mean leaving their home in St. Louis and missing the fair! At this, the girls unite for action. A most popular and charming play! One int. set.
