The plot of the musical con
cerns Finian McLonergan of
Glocca Morra, Ireland, who
knows why all Americans are
millionaires. (Everyone in the
world thinks so; everyone except
Americans, that is).
By a process of mathematics,
logic and moonbeams, he devises
the McLonergan theory which re
veals the answer: The magical
soil of Fort Knox that gives gold
phenomenal qualities hitherto
unsuspected by even the gold it
self. In order to come to America,
Finian "borrows" a pot of gold
that provides the power to make
wishes for the mortals of Ireland
from gnomes, elves and lepre
chauns. Finian arrives in Rainbow Val
ley with his daughter, Sharon,
and plants a pot of gold. The
leprechaun comes in pursuit, ut
tering dire warnings of misery
and destruction. Wishes are made
on the pot of gold, and history
veers crazily from its path.
The news gets out that gold
has been discovered on McLon
ergan's property and credit, cal
ico gowns and tractors pour into
the valley.
Sharon is about to get the rain
bow her father has always prom
ised her a boy for her heart and
pennies for her purse when the
leprechaun's predictions materi
alize. The play, based on a book
by E. Y. Harburg and Fred
Saidy, opened on Broadway in
1947 and went on a national tour
in 1948. Songs include: "How Are
Things in Glocca Morra," "Old
Devil Moon," "If This Isn't
Love" and "Look to the Rain
bow." John Tolch, technical director
of the University Theater, is the
director of the show. Frank
Bock, instructor in speech and
dramatic art, is technical direc
tor. "Finian's Rainbow" will be
presented Thursday, Friday and
