CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Lexington Museum Board President Paul D. Chapa has announced plans for the 20th Annual Stage Door Canteen to be held aboard USS LEXINGTON on Friday, 15 February 2013 at 7:00 PM. The upcoming event will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the commissioning of USS LEXINGTON CV-16.

Rocco Montesano, Museum Executive Director, said this year’s show will recreate the Canteen shows from WW II when famous entertainers traveled the world performing for service men and women far from home.  Headlining the star-studded cast will be USS LEXINGTON Big Band Orchestra. Celebrated vocal artists Jason Armstrong, Geri Elliff and Flicka Rahn will perform songs of the era. Scott Plant is back this year and will entertain you with his fiddle!   Described as a magic evening of nostalgia, the show has been a complete sell-out for the last nineteen years.

Tickets are $55 per couple, $30 single for open seating.  Reserved tables for ten are available for either $325 or $425.  Advance ticket purchase is required – tickets will not be sold at the door.  Major credit cards are accepted.

For reservations or more information, call 361-888-4873 ext 307 or 800-523-9539 ext 307.
