From the era that brought the world the Rubik’s Cube, Max Headroom and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes the “totally awesome” musical Back to the 80’s, a nostalgic romp through the greatest hits of the decade.
Performances will be held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 23, 24 and 25 beginning at 7:30pm at BCHS. Reserved seating tickets are now on sale.
Relive senior year at William Ocean High School through the eyes of now 30-something Corey Palmer. 17-year- old Corey is madly in love with his next-door neighbor Tiffany, one of the coolest girls in the school, but she is too busy mooning over athletic and good looking Michael Feldman. Michael is the kind of guy that Corey and his two best friends dream of being. However, while they may not be the coolest guys in school, Corey and the guys are glad they aren’t 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 dances, parties, twenty cans of hairspray, as well as some of the most popular songs ever written, and the result is a musical that will delight and amuse audiences of any age.
