Five mini-musicals take you on a thrilling ride through the songs that made the Gershwin brothers the most successful songwriting team in musical history in 'S Wonderful. This musical features more than 40 of the Gershwins' classic hits, including "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," "Shall We Dance," "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "Rhapsody in Blue." A series of charming vignettes, set around the globe between 1924 and the present, serve as the backdrops for this spirited homage to the golden age of musical theater. It's nostalgic, it's exciting -- it's 'S Wonderful. Learn More
The Young Americans range in age from 15 to 24 years old and tour the world to promote understanding through educational initiatives and theatrical performances. The musical ensemble is an independent organization and is not connected with any religious or political agenda. Its purpose is simply to present youth as they are. The Young Americans were the first group to put choreography to choral singing, and with national television exposure in the 60s and 70s, gave birth to the entire ‘show choir’ movement. Today, literally thousands of singing groups in major amusement parks, high schools and colleges across the nation can trace their roots to The Young Americans. Among its 3000+ alumni are professionals in motion pictures, television, radio, recording, and on Broadway.
