Lexington Museum Board President Tim Ehrman has announced plans for the 24th Annual Stage Door Canteen to be held aboard the USS LEXINGTON Museum on Friday, 17 February 2017 at 7:00 PM. The upcoming event will commemorate the 74th 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 the USS LEXINGTON Big Band Orchestra. Celebrated vocal artists Jason Armstrong, Flicka Rahn, Carla Gardiner, Christine Skinner, and Victoria Majors will perform songs of the era. Scott Plant, who was recently awarded 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-three years.
