The Jonesborough Repertory Theatre is excited to announce their upcoming production, the 1940s USO Christmas Show. It will run December 7 through 17 at the theatre located at 125½ West Main Street in Jonesborough.
Step back into the 1940s with JRT’s radio station WJRT as they encourage, entertain, and inform our troops both at home and overseas.
Just as America entered World War II, radio airwaves served as a key source of entertainment and news for families on the home front, as well as entertainment for the troops at home and overseas. The WJRT radio station will be broadcasting all of your favorite WWII Christmas tunes such as “The Christmas Song,” “All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” and many more. The radio cast will broadcast live radio skits as well as sing and dance to many patriotic tunes as we honor our military families with this memorable Christmas celebration of our freedom.
This popular show is written and directed by Jennifer Ross, choreographed by Heather Allen, and the band direction is under Lucas Schmidt.
The production is sponsored by Denny Dentistry, Morningstar Farm, and by Sonia King and Mary B. Martin.
Shows are Thursdays through Mondays at 7:30 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 and 5:00 p.m., and Friday the 15th at 5:00 p.m. Tickets are $16 general admission, $14 for students and seniors.
