The musical is directed by Scanlan with choreography by Patricia Wilcox (MOTOWN, A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN).
Zack Mayo’s got smarts and a body built for US Navy pilot boot camp, but he also has too much swagger… until he meets a drill sergeant who’s determined to drill his arrogance out of him. Zack finds comfort in the arms of a local factory girl.
