ACT! for Youth presents: Back to the 80’s, the Musical
October 20 @ 7:30 pm - October 29 @ 4:30 pm
ACT! for Youth is gearing up for a fantastic and exciting 2017-2018 season! Our first production will be Back to the 80’s, The Musical. From the era that brought us the Rubik’s Cube, Max Headroom and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes this “totally awesome” musical, a nostalgic romp through the greatest hits of that decade.
Back to the 80’s tells the story of the senior class of William Ocean High School, as remembered through the eyes of now thirty-something Corey Palmer. Seventeen year old Corey is madly in love with his next door neighbor, Tiffany Houston, one of the coolest girls in the school, but she is too busy mooning over Michael Feldman, the hottest guy around. Michael and his friends are athletic and good looking – the kind of guys that Corey and his two best friends dream of being. However, while they may not be the coolest guys in school, they are still one up on Feargal McFerrin, III, whose best friend is his computer and who believes the crazy notion that one day, CDs will replace cassette tapes. Throw in a Star Wars dream sequence, high-energy dance routines, the obligatory 80s party scene, copious amounts of blue eyeshadow, twenty cans of hairspray, and some of the most popular songs ever written, and the result is a musical that will delight and amuse audiences of any age
With artistic direction and choreography provided by longtime ACT! for Youth choreographer Patricia K. Bradshaw and technical direction by Patrick Mitchell, Back to the 80’s promises to be an exciting and magical beginning to ACT! for Youth’s season.
