As the 2018-2019 performing arts season barrels into its second month, let’s note that two of this week’s top picks happen south of the Port City. Tops in my opinion is the joyously melodic and energetic production of “Swingtime Canteen,” a jukebox musical running through Sunday at City Theater of Biddeford. Set in World War II, “Swingtime Canteen” is a patriotic dive into some of the best pop tunes of that era. Ogunquit Performing Arts has booked a pair of internationally known artists who will play consecutive Fridays, Oct. 5 and 12, in the 12th annual Elizabeth Dunaway Burnham Piano Festival. In Portland, singer-songwriter Antje Duvekot appears on Saturday. A resident of suburban Boston, German-born Duvekot is currently touring in support of her latest CD, “Toward the Thunder,” ‘Swingtime Canteen’ “Thank Your Lucky Stars and Stripes” is a song title that sums up a very tuneful jukebox musical that’s … [Read more...] about Out & About: Wave the flag for ‘Swingtime Canteen’
