This Pittsburgh Premiere of an original new musical composed by Richard Oberacker with book and lyrics by Oberacker and Robert Taylor, is an unflinching and honest story about confronting the cost of war and finding salvation in the notes of a song.

It’s 1945. American soldiers return home to ticker-tape parades and overjoyed families, and Private First Class Donny Novitski, singer and songwriter, returns with the hope of rebuilding his life with just the shirt on his back and a dream in his heart. Donny joins forces with a motley group of fellow veterans, and together they form a band unlike any the nation has ever seen to compete in a national swing band competition.
