The time is 1945 at war’s end and a group of soldiers are bidding farewell to their beloved General Waverly. Two soldiers, Phil and Bob, return home and quickly become stars in radio and on Broadway. Their former mess sergeant invites them to view his sisters’ act. Phil and Judy hit it off immediately; Bob and Betty do not.
Little Theatre tickets in Sullivan are flying out so fast that an extra performance has been scheduled for Friday, Dec. 15 at 2:00 p.m. Sat. and Sun. performances are sold out except for single seats. Call 217-728-7375.
With some subterfuge and finagling, they are all on a train bound to Vermont where the sisters are performing for the holidays at the Columbia Inn.

Even the general’s request to rejoin the army has been denied.
