Suggested Age Range : 8 to 13 but could extend upwards. Running Time : 80 minutes + intervals
Music: Several up-tempo tunes, mostly in 1920s styles, some set for choreography. Accompaniment should be small band (piano, guitar, 2 clarinets, trombone, cello or bass and percussion) but could be piano and drums. Ideally a small string group also on stage.
Set: From auction room, through antique shop, quayside and ship's deck, to middle-eastern road and finally palace; can mostly be very simple effects.
