Michigan Premiere of THE ANDREWS BROTHERS Runs Now thru 5/18
Songs from the fabulous 40s hit the stage when the USO heads for the South Pacific. The headline act is the Andrews Sisters, but what happens when they get stuck in quarantine? Luckily, three brothers, who also just happen to have the last name of Andrews, know all the songs! Songs include "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," "Slow Boat to China," "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive," and "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree" sung like you've never heard them before.
"The Andrews Brothers" plays at Meadow Brook Theatre on the campus of Oakland University from tonight, April 23 through May 18. Written and created by Roger Bean, "The Andrews Brothers" has musical arrangements by Jon Newton and vocal and musical arrangements by Michael Borth.
"Last year we produced 'Life Could Be a Dream,' which was also created by Roger Bean," said Travis Walter, MBT artistic director. "Our audiences loved it! When I saw Mr. Bean had created a musical with 25 songs made famous by the Andrews Sisters, I knew we had to do it."
"The Andrews Brothers" is directed by Travis W. Walter, with musical direction by Daniel Feyer and choreography by Tyrick Wiltez Jones. Terry Carpenter is the stage manager, with set design by Jennifer Price Fick, costumes by Corey Globke, lighting by Reid G. Johnson and sound by Mike Duncan.
