The Myrtle sisters have just arrived from 1919 via a time machine! They sing! They tap-dance! They joke! They share the importance of listening and cooperating through original and historical music, comedy and dance. The audience is invited to try out harmony singing and some individuals are asked to join onstage as dancers and band members. Through a story of independence and togetherness, the sisters learn that they don't always have to agree, but that they are stronger when they support each other. Can the audience help them get back to the past?
