The Andrews Brothers

Also available: Route 66

A USO performance from the Andrews Sisters is in jeopardy of cancellation when they fail to appear shortly before curtain. Thankfully, three earnest stagehands are determined to go on with the show! The Andrews Brothers is filled to the brim with 30 songs made famous by The Andrews Sisters and other top artists of the era, including the showstoppers “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree,” “Three Little Sisters,” and “Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive.” Mistaken identities and madcap adventures—imagine Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in a road movie of Some Like It Hot—along with the music of an entire generation highlight this wonderful valentine to the heroes of World War II.

Casting

Max Andrews
Male
Baritone/Bass. His Andrews counterpart is Maxene. His 4F ailment is flat feet. He is the stage manager and strives to remain in charge in the face of total disaster. Max is the oldest of the three brothers, and takes on the role of older brother.

Lawrence Andrews
Male
Tenor. His Andrews counterpart is LaVerne. His 4F ailment is incredibly poor eyesight. Wears thick glasses. Lawrence is the middle brother, and takes on that role. He is perhaps a little resentful of his older brother, and always ready to crack jokes at his expense.

Patrick Andrews
Male
Tenor/Baritone. His Andrews counterpart is Patty. His 4F ailment is asthma. When nervous, Patrick wheezes heavily. When really nervous, he stutters. When incredibly nervous, he faints. Patrick is the baby brother of the other two, and Max and Lawrence are careful to take care of him. He sings lead in Act II— front and center as Patty.

Peggy Jones
Female
Mezzo-Soprano. A cross between Betty Hutton and Betty Grable, Peggy is a WWII pin-up girl, and she longs to show everyone she's more than just another pretty face. Warm, loving, and sincere.

Director’s Note: Intricate harmonies throughout for everyone. Take great care to explore the brothers and their relationships. Older, middle, and youngest siblings have distinct roles they take in a family hierarchy, and this can really help inform the performances.
Setting: Backstage and onstage at a USO show on a small island in the South Pacific, 1945
