USS LEXINGTON Museum On the Bay Board President Pat Veteto has announced plans for the 25th Annual Stage Door Canteen to be held aboard the USS LEXINGTON Museum on Friday, 16 February 2018, at 7:00 PM. The upcoming event will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the commissioning of USS LEXINGTON (CV-16).
Steve Banta, Museum Executive Director, said this year’s show will recreate the Canteen shows from WWII when famous entertainers traveled the world performing for service men and women far from home. Headlining the star-studded cast will be the USS LEXINGTON Big Band Orchestra. Celebrated vocal artists Jason Armstrong, Flicka Rahn, Carla Gardiner, and Victoria Majors will perform songs of the era. Scott Plant, a recipient of the Texas CMA Hall of Fame Award, will entertain you with his fiddle! Described as a magical evening of nostalgia, the show has been a complete sell-out for the last twenty-four years.
Tickets are $60 per couple, $35 single for open seating. Reserved tables of ten are available for either $400 or $500. The higher priced tables are closer to the dance floor. Advance ticket purchase is required – tickets will not be sold at the door.
Ticket funds are used for continued restoration and maintenance of the USS LEXINGTON Museum. Dinner is not served at this event. Light snacks and a cash bar will be available. For reservations or more information, call 361-888-4873 ext 307 or 800-523-9539 ext 307.
