Bandstand

The Broadway Musical on Screen

Back by popular demand! From Andy Blankenbuehler, winner of the 2017 Tony Award® for Best Choreography for BANDSTAND and the 2016 Tony Award for Best Choreography for HAMILTON, comes the new musical that explodes with the most high-octane, heart-stopping and best dancing on stage today.

1945; as America’s soldiers come home to ticker-tape parades and overjoyed families, Private First Class Donny Novitski, singer and songwriter, returns to rebuild his life with only the shirt on his back and a dream in his heart.

When NBC announces a national competition to find the nation’s next great musical superstars, inspiration strikes! Donny joins forces with a motley group of fellow veterans, forming a band unlike any the nation has ever seen. Along the way, they discover the power of music to face the impossible, find their voice and finally feel like they have a place to call home.

In addition to the feature production, audiences will enjoy behind-the-scenes, never-before-seen footage with cast and crew.
