Actors’ Theatre and acclaimed Chamber Music Charleston are teaming up again to capture the holiday spirit with their production of “Charleston Victory Christmas 1945” on Saturday, Dec. 21 at 7 p.m. at the historic Sottile Theatre.”

It’s a wild time of celebration as troops are joyously returning home, including the host, Harold “Harry” DeWolf, a radio personality, who is best known as a “Fly Boy” who has broken speed records as a test pilot in the Pacific.

Two USO Starlets have returned along with musicians to entertain the troops with favorite holiday melodies, comedy and heartwarming tales.

The show stars Michael Easler, Mary Fishburne, Myra Jones and Clarence Felder who are joined by members of the Chamber Music Charleston musicians: John Samuel Roper, flutist, Frances Hsieh, violinist, Ben Weiss, violist, and Timothy O’Malley, cellist. This unique, theatrical production should prove to be a powerful, moving and nostalgic tribute to the fighting men, women, radio starlets and brave USO entertainers and volunteers of World War II.

Thanks to the original script by Chris Weatherhead, director, and Clarence Felder, actor and executive producer, plus the talents of the fine cast of actors and musicians, the show reflects the “heart and spirit” of those turbulent times, but, infuses the joy in celebration of ending the war.

Holidays would be not be the same without experiencing their blend of theatrical and musical talent.

Advance tickets are $15-18 general admission, $20 at door. seniors, students and group rates available. Call 843.763.4941 or go to www.chambermusiccharleston.org for more information.
