In Bandstand, it's 1945 and the boys are back. With American soldiers returning home, singer-songwriter Private First Class Donny Novitski dreams of rebuilding his life, forgetting his demons, and hopes for everything to be just like it was before. When NBC announces a national competition, a 'Tribute To The Troops,' Donny joins forces with a motley group of musicians, and together they form a band unlike any the nation has ever seen: a band of veterans. On their journey, they fight to have their voices heard, struggle to trust each other, and together must make a sacrifice that could end it all.
BANDSTAND: The Broadway Musical on Screen was initially released in movie theaters nationwide in June 2018 by Fathom Events, in special partnership with the military non-profit TAPS, which cares for the families of America's fallen heroes. Due to the success of the initial film release, an encore presentation took place in November 2018. The Broadway musical was also the first live entertainment production ever to be "6 Certified" by Got Your 6, for its accurate portrayal of the veteran experience. Bandstand was streamed on Playbill.com on April 10, 2020.
Following a critically acclaimed world premiere engagement at Paper Mill Playhouse in 2015, Bandstand began its Broadway run on March 31, 2017, and played through September 17, 2017 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. Directed and choreographed by three-time Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, In The Heights), music by Richard Oberacker, and book & lyrics by Robert Taylor and Oberacker, Bandstand won the 2017 Tony Award for Best Choreography and received a nomination for Best Orchestrations (Bill Elliott and Greg Anthony Rassen). The musical's cast of twenty-seven was led by two-time Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes (Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella) and Corey Cott (Newsies, Gigi), and featured Tony Award winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), Joe Carroll, Brandon J. Ellis, James Nathan Hopkins, Geoff Packard and Joey Pero along with Mary Callahan, Max Clayton, Andrea Dotto, Ryan Kasprzak, Erica Mansfield, Morgan Marcell, Drew McVety, Kevyn Morrow, Carleigh Bettiol, Kevin Quillon, Jonathan Shew, Ryan VanDenBoom, and Jaime Verazin. The Bandstand design team includes Tony Award winners David Korins (Scenic Design), Paloma Young (Costume Design), Jeff Croiter (Lighting Design), and Nevin Steinberg (Sound Design). The Bandstand film is presented in part by original Broadway producers Tom Smedes, Gabrielle Palitz, Terry Schnuck, and Roger Horchow. The production has partnered with Work Light Productions, The Road Company and Samuel French for the future touring and performance rights of the musical.
