GIVE a big salute to America’s troops with a traveling showgirl troupe!
The Pin-Ups on Tour show recreates the magic of the Hollywood Canteen, a haven for clinking drinks, dancing, and entertainment for servicemen in the 1940s. The Wormhole will transform and whisk audiences away back to that time as vintage-styled pin-ups dance, comedians tickle funny bones, variety acts spice it up, and smoldering lounge singers croon period-appropriate tunes. It’s all for the cause of low or no-cost entertainment for veterans. All proceeds from the show and raffle tickets go to supporting the troupe’s work entertaining America’s veterans inside and outside VA hospitals.
The night’s not over after the dazzling performers step off-stage: The 9th Street Rompers, a gypsy jazz/blues/rockabilly/tango band will keep everyone swept up in the past with upright bass, resonator guitar, ukulele, kazoo, and shared vocals. While they put on a heckuva show, don’t expect a cornball, novelty performance: the band prefers to impart the modern relevance of their style in their shows.
Vintage attire encouraged.
Thursday, June 16, 8 p.m., $20 general admission/civilians, $35 premium (includes reserved seats and a gift from the pin-ups)
