Tickets available for Soldier Show at Warner Theatre
October 12, 2006
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Army News Service, Oct. 12, 2006) - Free tickets are now available for the U.S. Army Soldier Show's Oct. 28 performance at historic Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C.
The curtain will open at 7:30 p.m. for "Reveille: Answering the Call," a 90-minute song and dance production of Soldiers expressing why they joined the Army.
"For our civilian audience, it may illustrate why people join," Soldier Show director Victor Hurtado said. "For our military audience, it might remind them why they continue to serve."
The bottom line, however, remains the same: "Entertainment for the Soldier, by the Soldier," the working motto of Army Entertainment Division.
Tickets are available at Room 3A146 in the Pentagon, Room 2S60 in the Hoffman Building and Room 509 at Skyline VI in Alexandria. For more details concerning ticket pickup at those locations, call (703) 697-3816.
A limited number of tickets are available at the Army Entertainment Division Office, Bldg. 1434, 6091 Jackson Loop at Fort Belvoir, Va.
The Warner Theatre Box Office, located at 513 13th Street, N.W., also has a small allotment of tickets, limited to two per customer, which must be picked up in person. Phone orders will not be accepted.
The Warner Theatre, which will seat 1,800 for the Soldier Show, is located between E and F Streets - three blocks east of the White House, two blocks north of the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center and six blocks west of the Verizon Center.
All seating is general admission for the Soldier Show at Warner, which will be hosted by Secretary of the Army Francis Harvey.
The 22-Soldier troupe has completed more than 90 performances during a six-month tour of military installations across the United States, Italy and Germany.
After playing Warner Theatre, they will perform Nov. 1 at Fort Meade, Md.; Nov. 3-4 at Fort Bragg, N.C.; Nov. 7 at Fort Monroe, Va.; Nov. 9 at Fort Monmouth, N.J.; Nov. 11 at Fort Belvoir; Nov. 16-17 at Fort Wainwright, Alaska; and Nov. 19-20 at Fort Richardson, Alaska.
Before arriving in the nation's capital, the Soldier Show has performances scheduled for Oct. 11 at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.; Oct. 13-14 at Fort McCoy, Wis.; Oct. 19 at Fort Drum, N.Y.; Oct. 22 at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y.; and Oct. 24-25 at Fort Dix, N.J.
