Corpus Christi – The USS Lexington Museum’s 29th Annual Stage Door Canteen will be on Friday, February 18, 2022 from 7-10 p.m. This will be a magical evening of music and nostalgia that commemorates the commissioning of this historic ship in February of 1943. Headlining the starstudded cast will be the USS Lexington Big Band featuring vocalists Jason Armstrong, Flicka Rahn, and Victoria Majors as well as special guest fiddler Scott Plant. Attendees are encouraged to wear their dancing shoes and dress in business casual, 1940s era fashion, or a WWII military uniform. Appetizers, a cash bar, and entertainment will be provided and complimentary valet parking will be available.

Steve Banta, Executive Director of the USS Lexington Museum, states that “Stage Door
Canteen is an important fundraising event. We hope that the community will join us this year as we celebrate our 30th anniversary as a museum and commemorate one of the longest serving and most decorated World War II aircraft carriers.” For those who are unable to attend or those who would like to participate virtually, the event will be streamed on Facebook Live. Only a limited number of tickets and sponsorships are available this year, so please purchase now at www.usslexington.com. Individual tickets are $100 and reserved tables for 8 are $1,000.
