The patriotic show features Broadway Veteran Jody Madaras, the 9-piece Hollywood Victory Caravan Orchestra, classic commercials, impromptu skits, and 42 of the greatest American songs ever written. This road show and radio broadcast inspired piece of music theatre that pays homage to America in 1942, a time when all was united, proud and patriotic.

As you enjoy the show, you know it’s a very special show as the orchestra is comprised of nine of the finest musicians, and the four cast members that have magnificent voices.
As a Broadway veteran, Jody Madaras has masterfully crafted together those values into a production show that takes us all on a sentimental and truly inspirational musical journey. The All Hands on Deck Show premiered in 2011 in Perrysburg, Ohio. That first opening of the show was so successful, no doubt to Mr. Madaras’ show experience and stardom of 20 years on Broadway. That premiere show brought a national tour, playing to sold out houses all across the USA.
The All Hands On Deck which brought a musical message for all Americans, features cast of four well-known and seasoned Broadway performers that include Jody Madaras, the creator of the show, Valerie Hill, Katy Richter, and Carter Lynch as well as a nine-piece live orchestra. Madaras has written the show to say, “Thank you to the greatest generation – the men and women who served our country during WWII and The Korean Conflict – and also remind Americans of a time when our country was truly united.” Madaras spent almost four years writing it, with “a heart filled with gratitude and patriotism.”
