"Bandstand"

It’s 1945 and six soldiers return from war to a changed nation. They form a band unlike any the nation has ever seen, and along the way, discover the power of music to face the impossible, find their voice, and finally feel like they have a place to call home. “The show defies you not to be moved” (Time Out New York). BANDSTAND is “both a peppy celebration of can-do spirit and a more somber exploration of what American servicemen experienced when they marched home from World War II. It’s a great argument for why theater can sometimes tell a story more boldly and more viscerally” (The New York Times). Sponsored in part by the WILLIAM J. AND MERRI S.
