    Music by Richard Oberacker


    Book and Lyrics by Robert Taylor and Richard Oberacker


    Directed by Dan Ellis


    It’s 1945. As America’s soldiers come home to ticker-tape parades and overjoyed families, Private First Class Donny Novitski, singer, and songwriter, struggles to rebuild the life he left behind.


    When NBC announces a national competition to find the nation’s next swing band sensation, Donny joins forces with a motley group of fellow veterans, and together they form a band unlike any the nation has ever seen. But soon, complicated relationships, the demands of the competition, and the challenging after-effects of war may break these musicians. Victory will require every ounce of talent, stamina, and raw nerve that these musicians can muster.


    BANDSTAND is “both a peppy celebration of can-do spirit and a more somber exploration of what


    American servicemen experienced when they marched home from World War II.


    It’s a great argument for why theater can sometimes tell a story more boldly and more viscerally”


    The New York Times. 


    “The show defies you not to be moved”


    Time Out New York.


    “A dazzling stand-up-and-cheer new musical!”

    Music by Richard Oberacker


    Book and Lyrics by Robert Taylor and Richard Oberacker


    Directed by Dan Ellis


    It’s 1945. As America’s soldiers come home to ticker-tape parades and overjoyed families, Private First Class Donny Novitski, singer, and songwriter, struggles to rebuild the life he left behind.


    When NBC announces a national competition to find the nation’s next swing band sensation, Donny joins forces with a motley group of fellow veterans, and together they form a band unlike any the nation has ever seen. But soon, complicated relationships, the demands of the competition, and the challenging after-effects of war may break these musicians. Victory will require every ounce of talent, stamina, and raw nerve that these musicians can muster.


    BANDSTAND is “both a peppy celebration of can-do spirit and a more somber exploration of what


    American servicemen experienced when they marched home from World War II.


    It’s a great argument for why theater can sometimes tell a story more boldly and more viscerally”


    The New York Times. 


    “The show defies you not to be moved”


    Time Out New York.


    “A dazzling stand-up-and-cheer new musical!”
