Michigan Premiere of ‘The Pin-Up Girls’ at Meadow Brook Theatre

Memorable musical runs April 20 through May 15, on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester.

Leanne and her friends are entertaining at their local VFW hall when they come across a collection of letters from the past hundred years. The singers are moved to put on a show inspired by the letters home from soldiers, sailors, and airmen spanning from World War I through Afghanistan. Songs range from “You Made Me Love You” and “Please Mr. Postman” to “Push It” and “Single Ladies.”

The Pin-Up Girls, by James Hindman and Jeffrey Lodinruns at Meadow Brook Theatre on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester, MI from April 20 through May 15, 2022.

The Pin-Up Girls is full of music everyone will remember and enjoy,“ says Travis W. Walter, MBT artistic director. “And while the show is a love note to our veterans, we know these familiar tunes will bring back memories for everyone.”
