Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin
Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
Once President Harry S. Truman appointed Washington D.C. hostess Perle Mesta as Ambassador to Luxembourg, the foundation was laid for a musical comedy that would kid politics-foreign and domestic alike.
Ambassador Sally Adams, with slim credentials, is sent off to administer in the tiny duchy of Lichtenburg. It's not long before her down-to-earth, typically undiplomatic manner has surprised and charmed the local gentry, especially the handsome Prime Minister. A second romance is blossoming between her young Ivy League aid and Lichtenburg's enchanting young Princess. The course of love is threatened by the stuffy opposition, who eventually succeed in wrangling Sally's recall, but not before all has resolved happily for both pairs of lovers.

A few words from a former student:
“I'm an experienced performer with a Masters in Directing and have done much improv, musical comedy and comedic live theatre in my life. I've been lucky to work with pros in dance, voice, movement and improv, and the one thing I have learned is that performing is an art that literally comes in so many mediums, that the best way to become skilled in that form is to work with the pros and glean from their experience. That's what this was for me. Kat imparted great tidbits and guidance that made this medium of stand-up accessible and rewarding.” ~Karen Chandler
