Veterans offered free admission to the musical ‘Swingtime Canteen’

Eastern Oregon Regional Theatre is bringing good-time tunes to Baker City with the musical “Swingtime Canteen,” based around a USO show at an Air Force base in London in 1944.

“What’s happened is Marian, the lead, her career has kind of tanked, so she picks up a bunch of girls and decides to do a USO show,” says director Lynne Burroughs. “It’s built around the music of the time — swing, jazz, ballads. We’d like to do a musical every year because people love them.”

And, to pay tribute to all those who have served their nation, EORT is offering free admission to all veterans, thanks to sponsorships from the community.

“We’ll have a veterans section in the front,” Burroughs said. “We need to honor our veterans.”

Admission for everyone else is $15. Only 100 seats are available for each performance. Fifty tickets will be available at Betty’s Books, and the remaining will be sold at the door.

The cast features Judy Trohkimoinen, Kathy Pointer, Robby Fast, Mary Collard, Grace Fast and Lynne Burroughs.
