Xanadu

“Heaven on wheels, and in leg warmers!”

A musical spoof of the cult classic movie of the same name, Xanadu: The Musical follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980, on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to create the greatest artistic achievement of all time: a roller-disco. When Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation, and chaos abounds. This hilarious, roller skating romp about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you, rolls along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, interwoven by a moving, electrifying book of endless fun penned by one of Broadway’s master storytellers, Douglas Carter Beane. You’ll want to keep the music in your head, and Xanadu in your heart, forever!

The house will open 1 hour prior to each performance for a disco dance party on stage with the cast. We’ll have the disco ball spinning and the tunes jamming.

Our Saturday performances have an option to purchase food during the dance parties, which consists of both hot and cold hors d’oeuvres.

Each weekend of the show will have a different theme for our daily costume contest. Winners will receive a prize pack that includes 2 free drinks of their choice. We encourage you to post pictures of your costumes on social media before coming out to the theatre. Use the hashtag #HowDoYouXanadu
