‘Kilroy’ opens Friday

FAYETTEVILLE — Excitement is buzzing at the Historic Fayette Theater this week as Kilroy cast and crew place the final touches on the show. The World War II-themed “Kilroy Was Here!” opens Friday, March 8 at 8 p.m. Tickets are still available for opening night, but are going fast. Log on to to order your tickets.

Seats also are still available for shows set for March 9, 15-17, and 22-24.

Come on down to the U.S.O. to see what’s going on! Ships leaving a Navy yard are being sunk by Nazi U-boats. Suspicion points to a nearby U.S.O. Club which may be harboring spies. Action builds to an exciting climax during a wild radio broadcast.

“Kilroy Was Here,” written by Tim Kelly, with music by Bill Francoeur, and directed by Millie Petersen, is a musical salute to all of the men and women who fought World War II. The show is filled with a lot of 1940s nostalgia: jukeboxes, jitterbug, and the mysterious appearance of those “Kilroy was here!” drawings, an extensive “1940s Glossary of Terms” with your opportunity to understanding life in 1942, at a U.S.O. club in Brooklyn, N.Y., when things weren’t looking too good for Uncle Sam.

The initials U.S.O. stand for United Service Organizations. Founded in 1941, during the early dark days of World War II, its mission was to supply a “home away from home” for America’s on-the-move military personnel.

Show tickets are available at online at, or at the door if any remain.
