The Story

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.

The Swingsical

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.

The Authors

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.
