Dirty Work At The Cross Roads

A Melodramatic Comedy features a cast of 20 talented Mission Valley Performers!

The Pin-Up Girls

Is a musical love letter honoring our Vets, written by James Hindman and Jeffrey Lodin. Nicknamed “The Pin–Up Girls” by a grandpa of one of the singers (when they were all sixth-graders), this trio of adult hometown gals (and a brother who fills in at the last minute) is full of nostalgia and pride for all who served in the U.S. Military. With tunes ranging from the Andrew Sisters to Hip-Hop, the foursome sings a cavalcade of hits inspired by letters home from our troops, paying tribute to times of conflict from WWI through Afghanistan and in between.

Pinup Girls Cast

Frances Connery, Courtney Quincy, Katie Velde and Joseph Kellogg appear in “The Pin-Up Girls,” directed by Anna Loehrke
