Show Synopsis:

A USO performance from the Andrews Sisters is in jeopardy of cancellation when they fail to appear shortly before curtain. Thankfully, three earnest stagehands are determined to go on with the show! The Andrews Brothers is filled to the brim with 30 songs made famous by The Andrews Sisters and other top artists of the era, including the showstoppers “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree,” "Three Little Sisters," and “Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive." Mistaken identities and madcap adventures—imagine Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in a road movie of Some Like It Hot—along with the music of an entire generation highlight this wonderful valentine to the heroes of World War II.

Patrick Andrews (tenor, Bb2-C5): His Andrew’s counterpart is Patty. His 4F ailment is asthma. He stutters throughout act one and sings lead in act two-front and center as Patty. When nervous Patrick wheezes heavily.

 

Lawrence Andrews (tenor C3-Bb4): His Andrews counterpart is Laverne. His 4F ailment is incredibly poor eye sight. Wears thick glasses. When nervous Lawrence laughs nervously, sometimes verging on giggling.

 

Max Andrews (Baritone Bb2-G4 sings A2 twice): His Andrews counterpart is Maxine. His 4F ailment is flat feet. He is the stage manager and attempts to remain in charge in the face of disaster. When nervous Max taps his foot incessantly leading to a large tap solo in act two.

 

Peggy Jones (Mezzo-Soprano Ab3-Eb5, E5 in Boogie Woogie):  A cross between Betty Hutton and Betty Grable. Peggy is a WWII pin up girl and she longs to show everyone she is more than just a pretty face.

Warm, loving and sincere.

 

Intricate harmonies throughout for everyone.
