America’s soldiers come home from war in 1945 to ticker-tape parades and overjoyed families, while Private First Class Donny Novitski (Corey Cott), singer and songwriter, returns to rebuild his life with only the shirt on his back and a dream in his heart. When NBC announces a national competition to find the nation’s next great musical superstars, inspiration strikes. Donny joins forces with a motley group of fellow veterans, each an astonishing musician, and young war widow Julia Trojan (Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes), an aspiring jazz singer. Together, they form a band unlike any the nation has ever seen. Along the way, they discover the power of music to face the impossible, find their voice and finally feel like they have a place to call home.
“BANDSTAND: The Broadway Musical on Screen” is presented in special partnership with the military non-profit TAPS, which cares for the families of America's fallen heroes. The Broadway musical was also the first live evertainment ever to be “6 Certified” by Got Your 6, for its accurate portrayal of the veteran experience.
