Happy Time. From there he went on to portray roles in the Broadway shows Maggie Flynn and The Rothschilds. He has also written several nightclub acts for Las Vegas and Europe.

WYETTA TURNER (Poopsie) made her Broadway debut with Pearl Bailey and Cab Calloway in Hello, Dolly! Off Broadway she has appeared in A Season in the Congo and Three Stories High. Her films include King of Marvin Garden and Jesus Christ Superstar. Miss Turner was born in Pittsburgh, and attended Stillman College, Indiana University and the University of Southern California. She has made numerous television and radio commercials.

TIGER HAYNES (Charlie) has been a headliner ever since 1947 when he made his vaudeville debut as a musician and comedian. He has pursued both careers with avidity, heading a number of jazz trios, including the Three Flames (their record of "Open the Door, Richard" sold 900,000 copies) such times as he was not clowning on stage or screen. On Broadway he has appeared in Finian's Rainbow, New Faces of 1956 and as Bill Robinson dancing with Carol Burnett's Shirley Temple in Fade Out-Fade In. He has played on television with Ed Sullivan, Johnny Carson and Merv Griffin and on Badge 373 and other leading dramatic shows.

BARON WILSON (Pop) was formerly associated with the Apollo Theatre Comedy Players and has appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show and worked extensively with U.S.O. Shows. He toured with the U.S.I.A. as writer and talent coordinator for The Nipsey Russell Show and made his off-Broadway debut in The Blacks. He spent two years in Secret Star on CBS-TV and is currently visible on the screen in Paramount Pictures' The Gambler.

GEORGE ABBOTT (Author, Director) has been associated with an incredible 116 productions as director, actor, producer or author. These include such memorable hits as On Your Toes, Damn Yankees, Pajama Game, Three Men on a Horse, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Never Too Late, The Boys From Syracuse, Pal Joey, Room Service, Wonderful Town, Once Upon a Mattress, Fiorello and Call Me Madam. He collaborated with Richard Bissell on the script of The Pajama Game, which was based on Mr. Bissell's novel 7 1/2 Cents. 1973 marks the 60th anniversary of Mr. Abbott's love affair with Broadway audiences - an affair that is definitely two-way. After studying with Professor George Pierce Baker at Harvard he began his acting career in 1913 in a play called The Misleading Lady. His most recent acting assignment was the State Department's international tour of The Skin of Our Teeth, co-starring Helen Hayes, Mary Martin and Florence Reed. The list of fine actors he has discovered, encouraged and developed reads like a Who's Who of American theatre.

RICHARD BISSELL (Author) wrote the hilarious Book-of-the-Month Club novel 7 1/2 Cents from which The Pajama Game was fashioned. His other books include another successful novel, A Stretch on the River, a book about the Monongahela River, and Say Darling, a novel about an unsuspecting author who finds himself head over heels in show business when his best-selling novel is transformed into a Broadway musical. Say Darling itself turned out to be a Broadway hit when it was adapted for the stage. If Mr. Bissell seemed to know about the pajama business, it was simply because for many years he worked in the family pajama factory in Dubuque, Iowa, where he was born and raised. He acquired background for his riverbooks by working as deckhand
