The dance numbers include cheerleading fun, a pompom girl pursued by a body builder, two shy librarians in love, a ballroom romance, a beach babe and a sextet of distraught lovers. The 1950s score is by Gershwin.
Act II combines Agnes DeMille's choreography of portions of the musicals "Paint Your Wagon" and "Carousel."
