War Bonds: The Songs and Letters of World War II

October 13, 2010

War Bonds: the Songs and Letters of World War II at the Midwest Genealogy Center last year was quite a hit, and it is coming back to MGC this fall. War Bonds, presented by EbzB Productions, is a multi-media musical journey through a war that redefined the world. By watching several couples in the audience at last year’s production and their response to the songs and dialog, the program hit sentimental as well as soft spots in their hearts. The actors encouraged audience participation as they came off the stage, sang to, and sat on the laps of audience members. During one tender song, I saw a woman reach over and clasp the hand of her companion. This brought a tear to my eye as in my imagination I saw them reliving memories from their war years apart. Definitely, I will be attending the next War Bonds program when it comes to the Midwest Genealogy Center on Tuesday, November 2, 2010. You can sign up on the website or by calling (816) 252-7228. We hope to see you there!
