SWINGTIME CANTEEN: The Star-Spangled American Hit
b yWilliam Repicci, Linda Thorsen Bond and Charles Busch
After 17 years with MGM, movie legend Marian Ames (Shannan Speicher) has endured four flop films in a row and is being put out to pasture. But there is no time for self pity. Marian has gathered up her gal pals from the Hollywood Canteen and headed for London to entertain the troops with the rip-roaringest canteen show of them all. Joining her are her stand-in on all of her pictures, Jo (Laura Ellis), her skittish niece Katie (Courtney Glenny), solid as a rock Topeka (Marianne Zickuhr) and leggy chorine Lilly (Carrie Cooke Ketterman). 30 vintage classic songs from the war years that will bring laughs, tears, emotional fireworks, air raids and a celebration of women during the war in this hilarious and heart-warming story.
Performances: September 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 24 @ 7:30 p; 18 & 25 @ 5:30 p; & 24 @ 2:00 p
