Brief Synopsis:

Jack and Charley invite Kitty and Amy to meet Charley’s wealthy aunt from Brazil, but she cancels at the last minute, leaving them without a chaperone. Desperate, the boys draft a college pal into a black satin skirt, bloomers, and a wig. As “Charley’s Aunt,” this charming frump wins over everyone, but when the real aunt turns up, comic confusion ensues!
