    Sunny Side of the Street

    When we think of the Great Depression of the 1930s, we might only remember images of people waiting in bread lines and being served in soup kitchens. But even during the Depression, some folks managed to look on the bright side and find themselves "On The Sunny Side Of The Street." Join us for this fun musical evening featuring mirthful songs of the 1930s -- songs that eased the Depression's bite, offered pithy personal advice, and poked fun at the upper crust
