Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield will host U.S. Army Soldier Shows next week.
Two Fort Stewart shows are scheduled for 7 p.m. Oct. 11-12 at Newman Fitness Center.
Another performance, also at 7 p.m., will be given Oct. 19 at Tominac Fitness Center on Hunter Army Airfield.
The carnival concept of this year’s show will take audiences on a globe-spanning journey.
Director Victor Hurtado said the show features “a lot of dancers, a lot of movement.”
“You wouldn’t go to the circus, a boardwalk, a country fair, a fun house — in four different areas of the world — and a Fourth of July celebration, all in one day,” Hurtado said. “You could never physically do that, but you’re going to be able to do that at this show.”
Among the performers is Pfc. Joseph K. Shaw of Hunter, who plays the piano, dances and is lead vocalist for the song “Country Thang.”
The show’s 106-performance schedule will have taken it to 61 installations, garrisons and other venues around the United States, Germany and Korea.
To enter Fort Stewart or Hunter Army Airfield, drivers must present a valid driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance. Passengers must present photo identification. All visitors to Hunter Army Airfield must enter through the Montgomery Street gate.
