"WE ARE AMERICA" @ The Madrid Theatre, Sherman Way.  Now through December 31

Want to take a stroll down memory lane with a group of very pleasant and talented singers/dancers?

Visit "WE ARE AMERICA," a world premiere musical salute to our veterans currently running at the spacious Madrid Theatre in Canoga Park.  The above cast takes you through a myriad of old standards that your parents and maybe you grew up with, via song and dance.  Each song is highlighted by smooth choreography and excellent vocals by a cast comprised of senior citizens age 62 and up.  The costumes by Benita Elliott are dazzling.  Waltzes, swing dancing, Tango, Cha-Cha-Cha…it’s all there.  The instrumental accompaniment is recorded, but you don’t really notice it as the singing carries each number. 

For a pleasurable evening, take the drive out to Canoga Park and catch this velvety production!

    Thank you for the wonderful review, Robert Axelrod, for We Are America. However, you only listed 12 of the cast members of the 13 in the show. Missing is: Bobbi Stamm - me!
    Hope everyone can come out to see us. We are now the only show of its kind featuring senior talent 60 years young and above in the whole country! We're having a ball dancing the way we used to back in the day! Come join in the fun and sing along!
