Get ready to strike up the band, dance the jitterbug, and get transported back to a time when big band and swing music reigned supreme. In Fort Atkinson Community Theatre’s new production, The 1940’s Radio Hour, audiences will experience all this and more. With a colorful cast of characters including the harassed producer, the drunk leading singer, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, and the delivery boy who just wants a chance in front of the mic, the show depicts the final holiday broadcast of the Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade on New York Radio Station WOV in December 1942. The play, written by Walton Jones, is full of dancing, old-time sound effects and 1940's music including Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, That Old Black Magic, I’ll be Seeing You and many more.
Performances will be held at the Fort Atkinson High School Auditorium January 31st, February 1st and February 2nd. The shows on Friday and Saturday will begin at 7:30 PM while the Sunday show will begin at 2:00 PM. Tickets are on sale now at Humphrey's Floral and Gifts, downtown Fort Atkinson, for $10. They will also be available for $12 at the door. The amazing cast and live band will have your toes tapping and get you singing right along. This show is a must see!
