This delightful comedy tells of what happens when appealing Mr. Pim, who has much trouble with names, drops in one day. Mr. Pim announces that the former husband of the lady of the house, thought to be deceased, is alive. Since the lady is married now, she is a bigamist. Her present husband is upset no end. Then Mr. Pim passes by again, confessing that he was confused and it is safe to assume that the lady's first husband is dead, as they originally believed. Without telling her husband, the lady uses the knowledge to get what she wants and to force her husband to permit his niece to marry the young artist who loves her.

"Walk On By" is an epic, romantic, dramatic comedy set in the swingin' '60s of London, featuring the songs of Burt Bacharach and performed by the Silverlake Children's Theatre Group. London in the '60s was the center of one of the most colorful and stylized moments in world history. A youth-driven cultural revolution emphasizing modernity, optimism, creativity and fun-loving hedonism made London the global hub of art, music and fashion scenes. Against this vibrant backdrop, "Walk On By" weaves various love stories that take place on New Year's Eve, 1967, culminating in the city's spectacular celebration in Trafalgar Square. Using the template of the movie "Love, Actually," multiple storylines -- happy, sad and bittersweet -- will overlap and intersect in the space of this one special day. Filled with songs like "What's New Pussycat," "I Say a Little Prayer," "What the World Needs Now is Love" and many more, this youth production can be enjoyed at the Assistance League Playhouse in Los Angeles.
