Musical romance is set in the 1920s at Madame Dubonnet’s fashionable finishing school on the sun-kissed French Riviera, where young ladies are schooled in the finer arts of 'marrying well'. Polly Browne, a millionaire’s daughter, tries to escape the stern influence of her father and find true love encouraged by Madame Dubonnet; but when Polly falls for Tony the delivery boy - and so pretends to be a mere working girl herself - matters become rather complicated! This musical includes numbers such as 'Won’t you Charlston with me?' and 'I could be happy with you'.
