Soldier Show entertains here Monday, Tuesday

Soldier-Show
SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Get set to be entertained by “Ready and Resilient,” the 2013 U.S. Army Soldier Show, currently performing at selected military installations during its four-month tour.

The Soldier Show takes place on Fort Huachuca Monday and Tuesday, 7 p.m., in Barnes Field House. No tickets are needed for the free performances, and everyone with installation access is welcome. Seating is limited, so plan early arrival.

The 75-minute song-and-dance production by active duty, Army Reserve and Army National Guard Soldiers uses music to put an entertaining spin on how Soldiers and their Families maintain readiness and resiliency.

“We had to take a good look at what the Army says makes troops and their families ready and resilient and what mechanisms the country and the world in general are offering to help with resilience,” said Soldier Show Artistic Director Victor Hurtado. “And helping with readiness because you know there’s a good chance that you’re going back out again, so you better be ready.

Hurtado promises there is something for everyone who watches the show. Tributes are paid to the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the 75th anniversary of “God Bless America,” the 60th anniversary of the Armistice of the Korean War, and the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Vietnam War. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the modern era of the U.S. Army Soldier Show.

“Every American, military-affiliated or not, will be able to see themselves in the show,” Hurtado said. “The fact that the show is entertaining someone is already taking them away [from their mindset], but the messaging is going to inspire. We know they are coming to be entertained, but further, the content in the show is designed to hopefully be a time-released pool of inspiration.”
