Step back into 1942 with All Hands on Deck!, a brand new show featuring the songs, dances and laughs of the 1940’s, at The Clark Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 3pm.

All singing! All dancing! All Big Band! All Hands on Deck! is a new, two-act revue performed by four charismatic singer/dancer/comics and a 9-piece orchestra. From 1941 to 1945, our nation was embroiled in a great world war. Hollywood’s brightest stars, directors and screenwriters responded to the call of duty by sending our men in uniform real living entertainment.

The Setting: July 4th, 1942. Act One brings a war-bond drive to “your hometown,” while Act Two becomes a live radio show complete with a live studio audience! On air antics, classic commercials, timeless songs and hilarious, impromptu skits power the radio show until the performance comes full circle with a big patriotic finish that pays tribute to both active duty and veteran members of our armed forces.

Songs include Chattanooga “Choo-Choo,” “I’m In The Mood For Love,” “Pennsylvania Polka,” “I’ll Never Smile Again,” “Don’t Fence Me In,” “America The Beautiful,” “Deep in the Heart of Texas,” “Thanks for the Memory” and a powerful Military Medley. All Hands on Deck! is the perfect way to step back into 1942 and pay tribute to both active duty and veteran members of our armed forces.

All Hands on Deck! boasts over 40 classic Big Band hits in original arrangements all packages in a fun-filled true-to-life reproduction of the kind of USO show Bob Hope & Jack Benny would have taken to the troops: classic humor and great music from those special days of road shows, war-bond drives and radio broadcasts.
