Summer Stage Kids culminates their two-week musical theater production camp with this one-hour musical- a rousing tribute to all those who have served in the military.Like the real-world volunteers who came together to create the United Service Organizations, providing a “home away from home” for American troops, this dedicated group of third through tenth grade students will spend two weeks learning the value of teamwork and cooperation through intensive acting, singing, and dancing workshops, as well as participating in teams that manage set design, props, and costumes. They’ll bring it all together in a family friendly production that celebrates our service members and uplifts spirits.The setting is a U.S.O. club in Brooklyn in 1942, where soldiers and sailors can take a turn on the dance floor with club hostesses, thanks to the new jukebox. Could there be spies at the club? It’s up to Private Joe Kilroy (whose habit of leaving a funny cartoon wherever he goes is drawing a lot of attention) to find out. The suspense keeps building until a wild radio broadcast brings down the house. This sensational show has it all — humor, suspense, nostalgia and terrific music sure to keep those toes tapping and hands clapping.Join Summer Stage Kids at the Numerica Performing Arts Center on July 3 at 7 pm and July 4 at 2 pm when they present “Don’t Say No to the U.S.O.” as part of Wenatchee valley’s “Let’s Have a Blast!” fourth of July celebration. Tickets are $5 at the door & veterans are FREE!
