The Daytona State College theater and music departments invite you to take a sentimental musical journey back to December 1942. The musical play called The 1940’s Radio Hour will help you get a jump-start on your seasonal celebrations.

The 1940’s Radio Hour takes place as a dinner-theater production Friday, Nov. 22, and Saturday, Nov. 23, starting promptly at 6 p.m. at the college’s News-Journal Center in Daytona Beach. Admission costs $45 per person and includes dinner and the performance.

Show-only performances are also scheduled at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24, with general-admission tickets costing $10 for adults and $5 for children.

In The 1940’s Radio Hour, written by Walton Jones, you’ll experience a “live” radio holiday broadcast to the troops overseas just before Christmas. “WOV” New York City presents a live orchestra, singers and dancers with some of the greatest standards of the World War II era. The hits include “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Love Is Here to Stay,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Ain’t She Sweet” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

The show represents a true evocation of 1940s Americana; even the radio commercials are authentic!

Tickets are available online at DaytonaState.edu/TheArts, or at the News-Journal Center box office, 221 N. Beach St. in Daytona Beach.
