Turnaround Artists to Bring the 1940s to The Playhouse with IN THE MOOD
IN THE MOOD, A 1940s Big Band Music Revue presented by Turnaround Artists will appear at The Playhouse on Rodney Square for two shows on Thursday, April 6 at 2PM & 7:30PM.
To the delight of fans of the American Big Bands and the Big Band era, the brassy, all-singing, all-dancing, all-American 1940s musical revue, IN THE MOOD is coming to Wilmington in celebration of 23 years on tour. Hop aboard the Chattanooga Choo Choo to Tuxedo Junction and get In The Mood for a Moonlight Serenade. IN THE MOOD is a fully staged tribute to Glenn Miller, The Andrews Sisters, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Harry James, Erskine Hawkins, Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra and other idols of the '40s.
Complete with authentic costumes, music arrangements and choreography, IN THE MOOD pays homage to America's greatest generation who fought WWII. It was a time when Americans listened and boogie woogied to up-tempo big band rhythms and danced cheek-to-cheek to intimate ballads. Experience the swing, the rhythm and the jazzy, sentimental and patriotic music of this pivotal time in America's history.
IN THE MOOD has a cast of 19 onstage: the sensational 13-piece String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra and the 6 swing Singers and Dancers performing over fifty unforgettable hits -- Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Well Get It, Sing, Sing Sing, On The Sunny Side of the Street and many more. Now in its 22nd season of sold-out performances across the United States, Canada and England, IN THE MOOD wowed Australia for 3 years in a row and is returning to Australia in the fall of 2017.
