PRINCETON — The Figgy Pudding Players will offer a free dramatic presentation of songs of World War II at Open Prairie, United Church of Christ, 25 E. Marion St., Princeton.
A free-will offering will be taken to benefit the Illinois Veterans Home at La Salle. However, admission is free.
Performances are at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday.
Written and directed by Kelly Autrey-Webber, the play is titled “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy — in an Air Raid Shelter?” The show features song hits by the Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby, and others.
The story begins in the little English village of Paggleford, where an annual flower show is held on the grounds of Bridlington Manor. When an air raid drives the villagers to seek shelter in the cellars of the manor house, they entertain one another with their favorite songs until a siren sounds the All Clear.
Refreshments will be served, in the style of an English tea.
