ALL HANDS ON DECK! was born of a heart filled with gratitude and patriotism.

Creator and star Jody Madaras wanted to write a show that would say “Thank you” to the greatest generation – the men and women who served our country during WWII and The Korean Conflict — and also remind Americans of a time when our country was truly united.



Madaras said, “This new 1940’s show is very special to me — I spent nearly four years writing it.” The Ohio farm boy knew he wanted to say something important. “We are reminded everyday that our country has challenges. I wanted to write about patriotic unity, what’s right about our country, and thank our veterans in a musical way. I know how much these songs mean to them. I wanted audiences to leave feeling a little better and happier about our country.”



Madaras used the Hollywood Victory Caravan — a group of famous film stars who toured America by train in 1942 selling war bonds — as the setting for his new show. “When I got the idea to do the show, one of the things I found was that no one had ever done a show based on the Caravan. It was a huge part of the war effort and no one had ever fully honored them.”

“1942 was one of the most pivotal years in world history paving the way for much of the prosperity we enjoy in this great country of ours.

That’s our theme: being united, then and now.”

Come and see the show — and increase the fun by coming dressed in your favorite 1940s inspired look.

This family-friendly show runs 2 hours including a 15 minute intermission. And while the content family friendly, the show is recommended for ages 8 and up due to its length.
