Sunday:  Swingtime

Salute on the Battleship Wisconsin

Sunday, July 1 

Time is running out to see this special performance!

For six weeks this summer, Swingtime Salute, An On-Deck Revue will re-create a touring variety show on deck of the Battleship Wisconsin in an evening of star-lit entertainment.  

Produced by Nauticus and Virginia Stage Company (VSC), the show will “entertain the troops” with singers, dancers and a side helping of all the excitement and adventure you’d expect aboard a warship at sea.  

Dashing sailors and dishy dames, accompanied by a live, on-stage band, expertly belt out the era’s popular tunes from the Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby, Glenn Miller, Jimmy Dorsey and more.  This retro celebration of the Swing Era is one for the boys, the gals, and the whole family!

Show starts at 8 PM.  Get tickets here.
