Westerville, OH—Otterbein Summer Theatre concludes its season with The All Night Strut at 7:30 p.m. on July 9 2 p.m. on July 12, 17 and 19; and 8 p.m. on July 10-11, July 16-18 and July 23-25, ONSTAGE at the Fritsche Theatre at Roush Hall, 30 S.

Swing’s the thing in the The All Night Strut! The production moves through the Depression, World War II and the post-war boom in a two-act musical celebration of the 1930s and ’40s filled with jazz, blues, bebop and American songbook standards. Weaving together the work of legendary songwriters such as Hoagy Carmichael, Frank Loesser, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Cab Calloway and the Gershwins, the story moves through time and place to highlight a slick slice of yesteryear and capture a beloved American era.

The All Night Strut! is full of wonderful old standards including “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Minnie the Moocher,” “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?,” “In The Mood” and “It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing.”

Tickets are $30 each and can be reserved by calling the Otterbein University box office at (614) 823-1109 or purchased online at
