After nine months and more than 60 shows in 21 states and two countries, the U.S. Army Soldier Show came home to Fort Sam Houston, Texas.
These soldiers with a passion for performing bring military life to the stage — and smiles to audiences around the world. The 2012 cast gave their final public performance Sunday, Sept. 30 at 2 p.m. at the historic and recently renovated Fort Sam Houston Theater.
The energetic song-and-dance production is called “Army Strong” and highlights the resiliency of Army soldiers, families and civilians through current hits, vibrant costuming and spectacular visual, including a high-resolution LED video wall featuring images of Army life. The cast and crew are selected by audition from throughout the Army. The show is assembled in five weeks, and then tours for six months around the world entertaining soldiers, families and civilians. This year the show performed more than 60 shows at Army installations worldwide, including Japan.
Ft. Sam Houston is home to the Soldier Show, managed by the Army Entertainment Division, one of Army Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation's (FMWR) many programs that provide a quality of life for soldiers, families and civilians commensurate with their service. FMWR is part of the U.S. Army Installation Management Command, headquartered in San Antonio, Texas.
The cast and crew for the 2013 Soldier Show will be selected in December and will have their opening performances at the historic Ft. Sam Houston Theater in February. Also available in high definition
