1940s USO christmas show
DEC 7 - 17, 2017
Step back into the 1940s with Jonesborough Repertory Theatre’s radio station, WJRT, as the theatre presents the annual
1940s USO Christmas Show.
Just as America entered World War II, radio airwaves served as a key source of entertainment and news for families on the home front, as well as entertainment for the troops at home and overseas. The WJRT radio station will be broadcasting all of your favorite WWII Christmas tunes such as “The Christmas Song,” “All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” and many more. The radio cast will be broadcasting live radio skits as well as singing and dancing to many patriotic tunes as we honor our military families with this memorable Christmas celebration of our freedom.
