Bobby Nesbitt returns to Marathon Community Theatre with Key West's favorite "girl singer" Carmen Rodriguez in their hit show Thanks for the Memories--A Salute to the USO, starting at 8 p.m. The show tells the history of the USO and the stars that entertained the troops. From it's beginning in 1941 through Korea, Vietnam and the Middle East, the USO and the entertainers known as "soldiers in greasepaint" were always there. Bobby and Carmen will spotlight the WW 2 era and the heyday of the Hollywood Canteen and the Stage Door Canteen when stars like Bob Hope, Betty Grable, Marlene Dietrich, Dinah Shore and the Andrews Sisters were the headliners. They will also take a look at later years when Marilyn Monroe entertained in Korea and Martha Raye took "Hello Dolly" to Vietnam. Tickets available online or at the Theatre box office, open weekdays and show nights from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Marathon / April 30 – May 2
Tarponian Tournament
For enthusiastic tarpon anglers, silver kings mean springtime. This high-energy, three-evening tournament mandates that teams fish with a different captain each evening. Teams also rotate among the three major bridge channels in Marathon, so any potential "hot spots" are shared among all anglers.
