This beloved show is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year and is in good company.
It was released the same year as Gone with the Wind and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. The script closely follows the famous movie, and this will be the third time Wilkes Playmakers has produced it.
"We get requests for this show all the time," said Karen Reynolds, director of the production. "It's one of the most popular shows we've ever done."
