Join us for a joyous jive down memory lane featuring 25 chart-topping vintage doo-wop standards in heavenly harmony.

It’s decades before “American Idol”, and a local radio station is sponsoring a band competition with a recording contract as the prize. Denny and the Dreamers are ready for their big shot at stardom, but trouble comes in the form of Lois, who arrives to put some polish on the boys. Denny falls in love, Wally falls in line, Eugene falls apart, and handsome heartthrob Duke sends the whole situation spinning.

A hit parade of classics from rock ‘n’ roll’s heyday will tickle your funny bone and touch your heart: “Fools Fall in Love,” “Tears on my Pillow,” “Runaround Sue,” “Earth Angel,” “Stay,” “Unchained Melody,” “Lonely Teardrops,” “The Glory of Love,” and more.  

Recommended for ages 10 and up. 

Running Time: 2 hours and 20 minutes including a 20 minute intermission.
