Western Sierra Collegiate Academy’s theater arts students will salute the men and women serving in the military with the patriotic musical “Kilroy Was Here”! running April 18-20th.

The World War II musical is a high-energy look back at 1942, where a cast of more than 30 students will sing, dance and tell the story of Private Joe Kilroy. The young soldier is at the USO Club in Brooklyn and the only private with knowledge of where the next Allied convoy will converge. The story heats up when enemy agents stop at nothing to learn his secret.

Musical numbers include "Together We Will Stand," "Slap That Jukebox" and "Rat-a-tat-tat That Rivet," with Andrew Sisters-style harmony.
