  Hilarity ensues in this 1930’s classic Marx Brothers musical when Mrs. Rittenhouse’s swanky house party honoring African explorer Captain Spaulding is interrupted by the pilfering of a prominent painting. Screwball antics arise as the guests search for the thief, resulting in this slapstick comedy. An adaptation of the original Broadway hit and classic film, this madcap comedy with songs such as “Hello, I Must be Going” and “Hooray for Captain Spaulding!”
