Announcing MLT’s Summer Musical:
Swing!
July 9 – 18

SWING! is a celebration of the music and dance phenomenon that swept the nation in the ‘30s and ‘40s and has returned to become one of today’s fastest growing trends. More than a dance revue, SWING! crosses ethnic and cultural barriers, hi-lighting an eclectic mix of Jive, Latin Swing, West Coast Swing and Hip-Hop Swing.

“Two thirds rhythm and one third soul.” That’s how Fats Waller defined the uniquely American form of popular music and dance known as “swing.” SWING! celebrates this remarkable diversity to the beat of the most exhilarating songs of the period. But as this enthralling song-and-dance show makes abundantly clear, swing was never a time or place — it has always been a state of mind! To borrow the title’s punctuation mark: It’s not art! It’s not cerebral! What it has to offer is a good time for the whole family. In short, it’s a show perfectly timed for the good time season.

Featuring such hits as:

“It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)”, “Jersey Bounce”, “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, “I’ll Be Seeing You”, “In the Mood”, “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree”, “Cry Me a River”, “Blues in the Night”, “All of Me”, “Stompin’ at the Savoy” and “Woodchopper’s Ball”.
