I am still in search of a male dancer or two male dancers to perform with the Mason Community Players in their production of “Sentimental Journey: A Salute to the USO.” The directors are creating a revue that will be an immersive experience taking audience members back to a canteen during WWII and presenting a typical USO Entertainment of the
day … live big band, vocalists, comedians, dancers.
There are two Swing Dance numbers and a lead is needed for those. There are also two pieces that include partner dance. The same individual could perform all of the dances mentioned, or perhaps there are two gentlemen out there, one who has some experience in Swing and one who feels comfortable in a partner lead.
Swing rehearsals are Sunday and Wednesday evenings. The partner dances can be rehearsed on a schedule created by the choreographer and the partners, until the beginning of November.
Show dates are November 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18. There are matinees on Nov. 11 & 16, evening shows on the other dates and Nov 10 has two shows – matinee and evening.
We know that it is a busy coupla months for theatre. The show is specifically designed to occur around Veterans Day, so that placed it at a busy time. But if someone out there would like to put their dancing shoes on for a fun show with some fun folks, it would be really appreciated.
