Joe (E. Mani Cadet) sings about Old Man River.
Among those on Capt. Andy's Cotton Blossom are (left photo): Julie (Elizabeth Ghandour), Queenie (Krystyn Spratt) and Magnolia (Elizabeth Eden), along with (right photo): Ellie and Frank (Ashley FitzSimmons and Brad Willcuts).
Magnolia meets and marries Gaylord Ravenal on the Show Boat (put cursor over the image to see the couple close up). They go off to enjoy a successful life, though nobody is sure how Gaylord makes his money.
When Frank and Ellie perform, they are heckled by a couple of backwoodsmen (Lyle B. Arnason and Jason Kruger) who take the action a little too seriously.
Parthy and Capt. Andy Hawkes (Patti McGuire and Mark E. Bailey) have different reactions to visiting the World's Fair.
Joe and Queenie (E. Mani Cadet and Krystyn Spratt) grow old together.
And everything turns out well in the end.
