Swinging sounds of big band music and hilarious backstage antics in The 1940’s Radio Hour. The world may be locked in the titanic struggle of the Second World War, but inside the studio of the WOV radio station, the show must go on! Their weekly broadcast of The Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade lifts the spirits of our boys overseas and the families they left behind. This musical comedy takes place in a small 5000-watt New York City radio station (WOV) and is centered around a group of performers and their attempts to make it to the “big time” in show biz. The radio program is seen through the eyes of the theatre audience who become the actual 1940s radio station audience. This fun production includes such old time greats as “Blue Moon,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Old Black Magic,” “Ain’t She Sweet,” “Kalamazoo,” and 18 other numbers from that era. With its tuneful score, high energy comedy, and nostalgia for a bygone era, this is a show for the entire family.
