Andrews Brothers

The cast of “The Andrews Brothers”

“The Andrews Brothers” is a tale of mistaken identities and madcap adventures. Imagine Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in a road movie of “Some Like It Hot,” along with the music of an entire generation highlight this wonderful valentine to the heroes of World War II.

A USO performance from the Andrews Sisters is in jeopardy of cancellation when they fail to appear shortly before curtain.

Determined that the show must go on, three determined stage hands — all men, by the way — squeeze themselves into costumes, grab a couple wigs, and give it their all!

The show hits the stage at Temple Theatre in Sanford March 23 through April 9.

The Andrews Brothers is filled to the brim with more than 20 songs made famous by the Andrews Sisters, including the showstoppers: “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Slow Boat to China,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree” and “Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive.”

Seasoned Temple vets, Sean Powell (Max/Maxine) and Drew Bolander (Lawrence/Laverne) join newcomers Josh Bernaski (Patrick/Patty) and Katherine Walker Hill (Peggy) for a performance that director, Peggy Taphorn says is “all the hijinks and mayhem of ‘Forever Plaid,’ set to 1940s swing music.”

During the three-week run, there are performances each Thursday at 7 p.m., Friday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults and $14 for students. Group discounts are available.
