Yank! The Musical

Yank! The Musical

09 Mar - 08 Apr

Aria Entertainment, Hope Mill Theatre and Mr Millerman Presents produce the UK Premiere of this hit musical. 

The musical begins with a young man in present-day San Francisco who finds an old diary in a junk shop… 

Through the journal we learn the story of Stu, a scared Midwestern kid who gets drafted in 1943, and who – like most guys – spends Basic Training wrestling with fears of whether he 'has what it takes' to make it in the Army. But unlike most guys, Stu also falls in love with a fellow Private, a handsome All-American guy named Mitch.

YANK…tells Stu’s, Mitch’s, and Artie’s stories, as well as the stories of the other men in Charlie Company. It explores what it means to be a man, and what it is to fall in love and struggle to survive in a time and place where the odds are stacked against you.
