EbzB Productions presents WAR BONDS: The Songs and Letters of World War II; a musical journey through a war that redefined the world. This multi-media living history cabaret is interspersed with personal letters from the front and headline news of the period. The production is a warm reminiscence and a harrowing reminder of a time when the whole world seemed upside down. The edited-for-television version premiered in 2007 as part of UNC-TV's World War II documentary project and aired nationally on public television throughout the United States (and then subsequently internationally). The national broadcast version continues to air via American Public Television (APT) distribution (www.aptonline.org). This performance is suitable for grades 4 through 12.
