USA. Young jazz musicians orketra.

Not having a contract or premises, climb at night in an empty theater, and begin rehearsing.

The orchestra plays the rhythmic music, the singer comes out, then the singer Dolly Dawn.

After the rehearsal, they are placed directly on the stage and go to sleep, but soon wake up from unknown knocking and cod.

This drunken negro cleaner returns to the theater and stumbles on the chairs.

Musicians decide to play a trick on him.

One of them, quickly put on a suit, "skeleton", begins a wild and terrible dance around the nigger, while others accompany him.

Terrified Negro bullet flies out of the theater.

Putting again, musicians notice that all this turmoil has not forced them to wake up entrepreneur George-he continues to sleep sweetly, smiling in his sleep. "Probably him dreaming our performance and magnificent conclusion of the contract", - says one of the musicians.

Indeed, George dreams of his orchestra in a big beautiful theater gives a concert and theater owner signs a contract with him.

Musicians zvsypayut again, but again not for long.

Their wakes knock hammers.

They jump in and see how the workers destroy the theater, where they dreamed to give a concert in the evening
