The musical pays tribute to the Greatest Generation who transformed America into an  Arsenal of Democracy.  It is set in Sturgeon Bay, Wis during WWII.  The musical follows a group of young men who enlist in the armed forces following the attach on Pearl Harbor and their friends, sisters and fiancees.  Two of the main characters, Roxie and Ann, give up their normal lives to help the war efforts by working in the shipyard.  Initially, the women are reluctant to leave their homes, but by the end when the men return home from the war, the women do not want to give up their jobs.  Loose Lips Sinks Ships is a story about the sacrifices that women made during the war and how much those sacrifices changes them.
