Friday Night Tickets

Victorian-era university students Jack and Charley are both in love and plan to propose to their respective girlfriends, Kitty and Amy.  They invite the girls over to meet Charley’s millionaire aunt, Donna Lucia d’Alvadorez of Brazil, who just happens to be planning to visit Charley for the first time. 

But when the aunt cancels at the last minute, the boys enlist feckless friend and fellow Oxford student, Fancourt “Babbs” Babberley — dressed in costume as a woman for an amateur play — to impersonate Charley’s aunt and clear the way for the boys’ marriage proposals. 

Soon, however, Babbs as Charley’s aunt finds himself juggling fawning admirers Kitty and Amy, along with the fortune-driven advances of two would-be suitors.  When the real Donna Lucia comes to town incognito to check up on her nephew, hilarious hijinks and cat-and-mouse fun ensue!
