Company Jump presents a free concert at 7 p.m. on Aug. 12 in Millennium Park.

Relive music of 1940s with concert in Millennium Park

Web Lead

Company Jump, a musical tribute showcasing the 1940s swing-music styles of the Andrews Sisters (Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy, Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree and others), is delighted to be back in the area.

A hop, skip and a jump down memory lane, Company Jump brings the swinging sounds and onstage antics of the Andrews Sisters to life. Lose yourself in the music that defined a generation and leave your worries behind as the girls sing their way through some of the best loved popular tunes of yesteryear in this comedic musical theatre production. A true family affair, this show weaves brassy and seamless vocals with swingin’ dance and plenty of audience interaction.

The show features three professional singers: Rossland residents Nadine Tremblay and Jane Gaudet, whom you may recognize from Iron Mountain Theatre’s Ski Bum: The Musical, and the fabulous talents of Vancouverite Andréa Isaak. The show is suitable for audiences of all ages and will authentically entertain just as the sisters did during the Second World War with their on-stage antics, catchy tunes, 1940s style and swing music. Everyone is encouraged to be as raucous as GIs serving overseas during the Second World War would have been!

Company Jump tours B.C. for two weeks this August and is playing mostly outdoor shows.

“Don’t miss this show,” said Tremblay. “Grab your picnic dinner, a blanket and the kids and come experience a high energy, swingin’ good time.”

Company Jump plays at Millennium Park at 7 p.m. on Aug. 12. This event is free but donations are appreciated. Company Jump’s visit was made possible thanks to the Creston Concert Society, the Community Arts Council of Creston, The Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 29 and the Prestige Rocky Mountain Resort.
