Highlighting energetic, authentic dance and a timeless songbook, a new musical review, Jump, Jive & Swing, starring The Swing Cats, opens in Nashville this month. But more than offering a tribute to legendary musicians of the past, the musical will raise money for the KIDSake Foundation, a charitable organization created to help families cope with the effects of Juvenile Diabetes.

"We pick up where the American Diabetes Association leaves off," says Jenny Rogers, who founded KIDSake in early 2000. "Our goal is to provide assistance and services on a local, personal level. The ADA is searching to find a cure. We hope to help children and families cope until a cure is found."

In an effort to help the KIDSake Foundation, Powerhouse Entertainment and the Stardust Theater have partnered to present Jump, Jive & Swing. The hep new music review stars Big Daddy Cool and the Swing Cats, a high-octane troupe of eight professional singers and dancers who have made a name for themselves providing family-oriented entertainment with a swing theme. The show features hit songs of the mid-20th century, including "Jump, Jive & Wail," "Sing, Sing, Sing," "Mack The Knife," "It Don't Mean A Thing," "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," and many more.

Jump, Jive & Swing opens March 20, 2001 and will run March 20-21, 30-31, April 13-14, and 20-21. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for children (under 5 are free) and are available at the door. The Stardust Theater is located on Music Valley Drive across from the Opryland Hotel in Nashville.
