WWII musical tribute performance of 'My Grandfather's Letters'

Get your tickets now for a  "Salute to Our Greatest Generation", a special presentation of World War II musical tribute 'My Grandfather's Letters'.

The narrative story of World War II told in the words and music of the time,  ‘My Grandfather’s Letters’ is a special performance library benefit fundraiser produced by Ed Gollop Theatrical Productions.    

The show provides a compelling, provocative and moving musical tribute to the life and times of the most important chapter of 20th-century America, with the narrative and songs reliving radio's eye-witness accounts, stories, and letters about the war.  The story relates a very human side of America. From love letters between a possibly doomed soldier and his sweetheart back home, to the hit-parade standards that with their pathos and bravado suggested the fears and hopes of a country gripped in a great struggle.   Beautiful love ballads like “Stardust” and “Blues in the Night” highlight the tale of separated loved ones.  “Der Fuehrer’s Face” mocks sociopathic dictator Hitler’s death at his own hands.   The memorable “Rum and Coca-Cola” and “When the Lights Come on Again All Over the World” speak to the sadness and simple prayers of a nation.

‘My Grandfather’s Letters’ will open June 3, 7 p.m. at the Huntsville Main Branch Auditorium, with repeat performances on June 4 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., and closing June 5, at 2 p.m.    Benefit tickets for ‘My Grandfather’s Letters’ are $18 and available at all branches or at the door.   Group/Vet/Senior discounts are available.  Seating is limited at the Main Branch Auditorium, reserve tickets early to guarantee a seat.
