Swing’s the thing in this classy, sassy musical celebration of the 1930s and ’40s filled with jazz, blues, and American songbook standards!

Featuring songs like “In The Mood”, “Fascinating Rhythm” and “As Time Goes By”, this show will bring back memories from days gone by. An international hit, The All Night Struthas delighted audiences old and young with its sublime music and sheer energy. Presented at the historic World Theatre in downtown Kearney, The All Night Strut is certain to send audiences back into the world with a skip in their step and a song in their heart.
