Puttin' On the Hitz at the Capitol Theatre

With scintillating choreography, spectacular scenery and sophisticated costumes you'll find there's no business like show business. Go steppin' out with a dynamic cast on national tour of eight professional singer/dancers plus a quartet of the finest jazz musicians, as they put on their top hat, white tie and tails underneath the stars of a Manhattan skyline...right on the stage of the beautiful historic Capitol Theatre in downtown Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. The Great American Songbook is a dazzling parade of American popular music from the 30s, 40s and 50s. This distinct body of musical work collectively represents one of America's true cultural treasures. From the pens of George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Lorenz Hart, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, and many more, The Great American Songbook tells the story of the first 3o years of America's "classic" music. It's popular songwriting at its best...from the timeless tunes of Tin Pan Alley to the bright lights of Broadway, all the way to the heyday of the Hollywood musical!
