“Little Johnny Jones” features a large cast of con men, zany inept grifters, wealthy dowagers ripe for a swindle, confused hotel guests, bumbling police and singing, dancing bellhops who will stop the show with random performances. Auditions are open to youth from 2nd Grade through High School. Auditioners should prepare a song from traditional Broadway repertoire and provide sheet music in the appropriate key.

Credited as being the first American Musical, “Little Johnny Jones” is considered the prototype of the modern musical, spanning the gap between operetta and music hall. The show introduced the famous Broadway songs "Give My Regards to Broadway" and "Yankee Doodle Dandy." The title character was inspired by the famous jockey Tod Sloan.

A brash, young American jockey, Johnny Jones, goes to England to ride his horse, Yankee Doodle, in the English Derby. His girlfriend, Goldie Gates, follows him to Britain, disguised as a man to discover if Jones really loves her. While in England, Jones is offered a bribe to lose the race deliberately, but he refuses. Our villain, Anthony Anstey, then tries to frame Jones for throwing the race. While all America thinks Jones is a crook, Jones stays in London to try to clear his name, singing “Give My Regards to Broadway”. Will Johnny catch the villain and clear his name? Will he and Goldie finally get together? Who is the villain who tried to frame Johnny Jones?
