Boop-Boop-A-Doop Girl!

A Musical Romp through the 1920's with Helen Kane


Boop-Boop-A-Doop Girl! is a musical cabaret which pays tribute to that iconic flapper, Helen Kane. A 1920's vaudeville performer, Helen Kane was the gal who interpolated the skat "boop-boop-a-doop" into popular song. It seemed to strike a chord with audiences, and before long became the craze that would come to epitomize the "Era of Wonderful Nonsense." Helen Kane's baby-talkin' voice and mannerisms were copied by the very famous cartoon, yep, you guessed it, Betty Boop. Cindy Ball recalls the life and work of the original Boop Girl, playing her with all the wide-eyed innocent naughtiness that set the decade of the flapper generation on fire.

Cindy with Helen Kane's nieces and nephew

FromThe Dorothy Parker Society's recap of "Parkerfest," which included a special performance of Boop-Boop-A-Doop Girl

"The show opened with Cindy Ball, a super talented actress/singer/comedienne. The native Texan wrote "Boop Girl" about the story of Helen Kane, the real-life model for Betty Boop. Cindy had the crowd eating out of her hand during her 45-minute show. In the audience was a special surprise for Cindy, a dozen of Helen Kane's nieces, nephews and family members."
