The War Front, the Home Front, Big Band, Swing, Radio, 40's Hollywood and Broadway share center stage. RMT's cavalcade of musical theater stars hit the stage in full force, reliving the Rexall Radio Hour, nostalgia of old-time holidays, Broadway in its' heyday, a show-stopping U.S.O show and more.

An exclusive arrangement features the World Famous Precision Dancers in the production, with 12 former Radio City Music Hall Rockettes from across the country, choreographed by former Rockette Sandra Philpott. Remembering the 40'sfeatures classic sentimental repertoire from the beloved era, including "I'll Be Home for Christmas," "I'll Be Seeing You," "This Is the Army," "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," "There Is Nothing Like a Dame" from South Pacific and the rousing title number from Oklahoma! Talented RMT impressionists recreate classic comic routines like Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First?" and Jack Benny and Mel Blanc's "Si Sy Sue." When the entire theater joins the cast in singing Kate Smith's version of "God Bless America," the rafters shake with pride.
