March 2024 update:

Many people are continuing to contact me asking about when IN THE MOOD will be touring again. Honestly, I'm not sure, but we are still working very hard on putting a tour together that will continue on to many towns and cities that we have visited before during our 25 years of performances. Planning a tour of many cities and towns requires a great deal of work in advance to make it all happen.

Let's all hope that we can "get on the bus" again real soon. People love live entertainment and we truly miss meeting so many friends and fans of IN THE MOOD. Here's hoping that we certainly can bring the great music of the 1930s and 1940s to you..

    Meet the Cast & Crew

    IN THE MOOD tours with an amazing cast of performers and a world-class production staff from all over the U.S. and we are looking forward to entertaining our fans that are returning to see the show again (some for the 8th time!) and those that are coming for the first time.


    IN THE MOOD is a celebration of the music of the 1930s & 40s – the Big Band era. It was the last time that all Americans were listening and dancing to the same kind of music. With our live sensational 13 piece String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra and our fabulous IN THE MOOD Singers and Dancers, the great melodies and lyrics that are still with us today are presented in a musical revue that is jazzy, sentimental, rhythmic, nostalgic and patriotic – all happening at the same time. With music arrangements, costumes and choreography IN THE MOOD is as authentic as it gets.
