We take our audience back in time to the golden age of the 1940's to revisit America's musical past and entertain with music that helped America through World War II --timeless music that contributed to our rich musical history.
The Celebrate America Show: "In The Miller Mood" is three outstanding events all rolled into a show-stopping package! For one very reasonable price you get Dinner, a Broadway-Style Show AND 1940s style Supper Club style entertainment! During the delicious dinner, by award-winning Utah State University Catering, you'll enjoy music by our excellent combo. Then, brace yourself for a fast-paced, toe-tapping show starring the Stardust Singers, Stardust Dancers, and the Larry Smith orchestra. The show takes you back to the 1940s where you'll see for yourself why Glenn Miller was named the "king of swing" as you enjoy his classic music along with that of Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman - all the big bands of the era. And that's not all - AFTER the show you don't want to miss the band and singers performing your favorite big band era tunes when you can dance or just enjoy listening.
Our Education Outreach program was created under the guidance of teachers to help 5th grade students learn what an important role music played in American history by giving hope and building morale, especially during WWII. Teachers incorporate specialized curriculum into their classes as they teach children selected music (which they get to sing with the band and Stardust Singers during the show). The Education Outreach performance explodes with energy from these excited students.
We believe that perhaps more so than ever before, there is a great need to show love for, and appreciation of, the freedoms we enjoy on a daily basis, and to the men and women who sacrifice to make our freedom possible. A need to celebrate the GOOD in America, to educate our youth that they may better connect - younger generations to the "Greatest Generation". A need to build morale and give hope for a brighter America. A need to preserve and pass along "America's music", by teaching and inspiring through a musical format with patriotic entertainment. By providing entertainment that educates, honors the past, and inspires the future, the Celebrate America Show builds patriotism through the performing arts.
In honor of the late Lt. Colonel Von W. Freeman, one of our major show contributors, a deserving military veteran is presented this special recognition and award. The recipient is a veteran who has made a significant difference in our community. The evening also pays a stirring musical tribute to the men and women of the armed forces. The Celebrate America Show partners with Honor Flight to send World War II Veterans back to Washington D.C. to visit their memorial. We welcome your suggestions if you would like to nominate a veteran for the Freeman Award.
