SYNOPSIS: Harriet Gunther's Chicago boarding house for young ladies almost loses its good reputation in a single night in 1925. Three gangsters posing as the new "help" invade the house looking for a treasure supposedly hidden there by Two Ton Tommy, a notorious but now dead-gangster. To complicate matters, the world's greatest screen lover and his director take refuge in the house to escape rabid fans. A would-be writer promises to do anything to find the girl of his dreams who lives in the house—only he doesn't know which one. Father and son tycoons insist on impressing as many of the girls in the house as they can. Topping it off, a nosey neighbor is sure Harriet is running a speakeasy. Is it any wonder several of the girls fall hard for the intruders? Chicago in the 20s—it's exactly what made the decade roar!

"We were pleasantly surprised by the writing…excellent characterization. Our kids did research on the real-life characters (from the name twist of each character). Our kids had a wonderful time with the production."
