The hilarity of Strike up the Band proves that "all is farcical in love and war!" with this romp; a true joy embodied on the stage. With music by George Gershwin, lyrics by Ira Gershwin and script by George S. Kaufman, this Broadway classic offers songs ranging from playful Gilbert and Sullivan pastiches to heart-clutching ballads (most notably "The Man I Love"), woven into a goofy plot that is loaded with blatant anti-war, big-business satire.

Presented by White Iris Light Opera Company
Admission is Free
