Cavelero Drama Club to perform musical

The Cavelero Drama Club has been working very hard preparing for a fun 1940's musical, Kilroy Was Here.

This musical is near and dear to many of the students who have close ties to military with many family members who are currently serving or have served.

This musical salutes the brave men and women serving in the military with this patriotic comedy. 

There won't be a dry eye in the house after the stirring,  'Together We Must Stand' and a tribute to all  branches of the military.  Still, Kilroy is a comedy and the setting is a U.S.O. Club in Brooklyn in 1942. 

Ships leaving the nearby Navy yard are being sunk by enemy U-boats. Allied intelligence suspects the club is unknowingly harboring Axis spies. 

Enter Private Joe Kilroy, a young soldier who draws a curious cartoon face everywhere he goes (and is this causing trouble).  He's the only one who knows where the next Allied convoy will converge. 

The enemy agents are stopping at nothing to learn his secret.  

The score includes such hits as  'Don't Say No To The U.S.O.,'  'Slap That Jukebox,' 'Jitterbug Saturday Night,'  and 'Rat-a-tat-tat That Rivet,'  with classic Andrews Sisters style harmony!

The musical opens April 18 at 6 p.m., with two additional shows on April 19 at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

The cost is $7 for adults, $5 for students and seniors.
