In the Mood delights with a cast of nineteen singers and dancers, as well as the String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra. The show recreates an era when America mixed it up with sentimental ballads, fantastic swing rhythms and soft flowing waltzes, complete with choreography, amazing scats and pleasing harmonies.
With way out costumes and a pumping thirteen-piece Big Band performing fifty unforgettable hits from Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Frank Sinatra and the Andrews Sister, this will be a great event. Be delighted by the Chattanooga Choo Choo, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (of Company B), In The Mood, Tuxedo Junction, Sing, Sing, Sing, Sentimental Journey and more.
Whether you aspire to be a hep cat, lindy-hopper or simply adore Big Bands, get ready for In the Mood.
