Created by and starring veteran of the Broadway stage, Jody Madaras, this road show/radio broadcast inspired piece of music theatre pays homage to our nation as it was in 1942; a time when all stood united – proud and patriotic – and our ‘stars’ weren’t self-promoting reality show celebrities, but bigger-than-life artists like Bob Hope; performers who entertained those of us on the home front while touring abroad to prop up the spirits of our soldiers on the frontlines. With a cast of strong performers and a live nine-piece band, known as the Hollywood Victory Caravan Orchestra, this show features tight harmonies, impromptu skits, classic commercials, and 42 popular, all-American songs. You’ll be delighted to hear sing-along favorites like By the Light of the Silvery Moon, Chattanooga Choo-Choo, Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree, Thanks for the Memory, Sentimental Journey, I’m in the Mood for Love, I’ve Got a Gal in Kalamazoo, and America the Beautiful.

Samson soon falls prey to temptation, losing his strength and sight. And it’s here where he will face his greatest challenge.
