About the show:
- Soldiers of Song is a live performance involving theatre, music, and storytelling based on the original works of the Dumbells, a Canadian concert party that entertained the troops on the front line in World War I.
- The talented cast of musicians and actors bring the old comedy sketches and humorous war songs to life.
- Monty Python, Wayne and Shuster, SCTV, and Saturday Night Live owe a lot to the Dumbells, who are considered the pioneers of sketch comedy.
- The Dumbells were born in the muck and mire of World War One trenches, forming in 1917 near Vimy Ridge, France.
