Stand for the Troops, a nonprofit foundation focused on safeguarding the well-being of America's troops, will present a "Spring Fever" musical show on Friday, March 15.

The performance, which will benefit the foundation's You Are Not Alone Initiative, will take place at 7 p.m. at the Unitarian Church in Westport, 10 Lyons Plains Road.
