About the Show
Listen to the Score
In 1943 Mississippi, a young trumpeter has the chance to fulfill her dream of playing with the hottest all-girl swing band in the country. There's just one catch: she's white, it's a "colored" band, and this is the Jim Crow South.
SWEETHEARTS is insipired by true stories. Learn more about the history here.
SWEETHEARTS OF SWING is the latest collaboration by Nat & Kat: Book by Natalie Wilson, and original music, lyrics and arrangements by Kat Sherrell. Learn more about the dynamic duo here.
SWEETHEARTS OF SWING is a musical featuring 11 female actor-musicians who perform the original big band score onstage. We call it a “swingsical” to describe how it differs from a traditional musical: the music is all diegetic, largely instrumental, and characters use their instruments to express themselves the way characters traditionally use their voices.
