8 p.m. Thur.-Sat., 2 p.m. Sun. Feb. 21-March 8. International City Theatre’s launches its 35th season with a look back to the swinging ’40s. The songs of the Andrews Sisters form the musical foundation for this madcap comedy. The story centers around a USO show threatened with cancellation after a certain famous trio of singing sisters fail to appear. With a “let’s put on the show” spirit, three stagehands are determined to make it happen. To do so involves mistaken identities, zany adventures, a bit of cross-dressing, and sublime songs of the Andrews Sisters, such as including “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree” and “Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive.” Previews are Feb. 19-20. Ages 8 and older.
