About ALL HANDS ON DECK:

ALL HANDS ON DECK! – A show that honors Veterans and celebrates AMERICA!
ALL HANDS ON DECK is a new, two-act revue performed by four charismatic
singer/dancer/comics and a live orchestra featuring the songs, dances, and
laughs that America has loved since the ‘40s. It boasts over 40 classic Big
Band hits in original arrangements all packaged in a fun-filled,
true-to-life reproduction of the kind of USO show Bob Hope and Jack Benn
would have taken to the troops: classic humor and great music from those
special days of road shows, war-bond drives, and radio broadcasts.
ALL HANDS ON DECK is written and directed by Jody Madaras and is a regional
premiere.

Musical Highlights include: Chattanooga Choo-Choo, Atchison Topeka And The
Santa Fe, I’m In The Mood For Love, Pennsylvania Polka, I’ll Never Smile
Again, Any Bonds Today?, Don’t Fence Me In, America The Beautiful, Deep In
The Heart Of Texas, Thanks For The Memory and a powerful Military Medley.
