The quintessential 1920s collegiate musical, filmed in 1930 and again in 1947, was brought back to vivid life by Music Theatre Wichita in 1993, with a sparkling new libretto and sassy orchestrations, doing full justice to a score that includes such toe-tappers as “Button Up Your Overcoat,” “The Varsity Drag,” “Keep Your Sunny Side Up,” “Life Is Just a Bowl of Cherries,” “The Best Things in Life Are Free,” and “Lucky in Love.” Life on a college campus never seemed so carefree or so lively. (Make sure you license the "1993 Version" from Concord Theatricals!)
This zesty vintage show calls for zesty vintage costumes, so here is a rich collection of danceable and distinctive wearing apparel, based with historical accuracy on 1920s collegiate cartoons and paper doll collections. This large and colorful package ensures that your production can boast a campus full of freewheeling flappers, bell-bottomed sheiks, stylish sorority girls, and a full team of 1927 football players, with authentic-looking uniforms and helmets (plus six uniforms for members of the rival team).
