Step back into the ’40s era with Jonesborough Repertory Theatre’s radio station WJRT as the theater presents its annual 1940s USO Christmas Show during December. 

Just as America entered World War II, radio airwaves served as a key source of entertainment and news for families on the home front and entertainment for the troops. The radio cast will be broadcasting live radio skits as well as singing and dancing to many patriotic and familiar Christmas tunes as they honor military families with this memorable Christmas celebration of our freedom.

This production is written and directed by Jennifer Ross-Bernhardt, choreographed by Heather Allen with band direction by Lucas Schmidt. Jonesborough Repertory Theatre gives special thanks to the sponsors: Denny Dentistry, Morningstar Farms, Joe Grandy, Citizens Bank, Chick-fil-A, Sonia King/Mary B. Martin.

Shows run December 6-16: Thursday through Monday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 2 and 5 p.m. Tickets are $16 general admission, $14 for students and seniors. There is also a special group rate for parties of 15 or more.

To purchase tickets, call the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center at 423-753-1010 or go online to www.jonesboroughtheatre.com.

This USO show is neither sponsored nor endorsed by the USO and it is not a fundraiser for the USO.
