An Officer and a Gentleman is a new musical based on the Oscar-winning film. 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 determined to drill his arrogance out of him. Zack finds comfort in the arms of a local factory girl. When tragedy befalls a fellow candidate, Zack finds the courage to be his best self and win the heart of the woman he loves. A sweeping romance that lifts you up where you belong.

This performance will feature an American Sign Language interpreter and audio description.
