Jazz in July

July 14,  2014, Monday

Broadway's Patriotic Musical!
A fun-filled, true-to-life production based on the kind of USO show Bob Hope and Jack Benny had taken on tour to the troops in the field in 1942: classic humor, great music such as "Chattanooga Choo-Choo," "Pennsylvania Polka," "I'm In The Mood For Love," "Deep In The Heart Of Texas," and "Thanks For The Memory," from those special days of road shows, war-bond drives, and radio broadcasts!


Festival Table (seats 6) $180; Amphitheater $20; Lawn $10
