By Special to the Monitor

With a big band orchestra, singers and swing dancers, “In the Mood” is the retro 1940’s musical that brings to the stage the music that moved a nation’s spirit and helped win a war.
Presented by Artbeat, Inc., a not-for-profit performing arts presenter, the musical is coming to Duane Smith Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1.
More than a concert, “In the Mood” is a Big Band Theatrical Swing Revue that brings to life the era when all of America was listening and dancing to the same kind of music: Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Erskin Hawkins, The Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra and other artists of the 1940’s. Featuring a company with 19 on stage, including the “In the Mood” singers and dancers with the sensational String of Pearls big band orchestra, the show’s arrangements, costumes and choreography are as authentic as it gets.
Tickets for the performance are all general admission: $29 and $35 VIP (seating first seven rows) and available in Los Alamos at Otowi Station and CB Fox Department Store and the Betty Ehart Senior Center; and in Santa Fe at Nicholas Potter Bookseller.
Tickets may also be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets by calling 800-838-3006 anytime, or visiting www.brownpaper
