This summer's Theatre-on-the-Hill production will take attendees back to the era of big bangs, oversized shoulder pads and acid-washed jeans.
The musical Back to the 80s transports the audience to the year 1989 through the eyes of 30-something Corey Palmer (Scott Bovaird), as he recalls his senior year at William Ocean High.
Prominently featured in his reminiscence are Tiffany (Kristina Parro), his first love; Michael Feldman (Victor Rachal), quarterback and his arch rival; his best friends Kirk and Alf (Troy Schaeflein and Jon Slowik, respectively); the boy-crazy, Madonna fashionista Cyndi (Alyssa Emelio); Feargal (Kevin Nepomuceno), super-nerd; teachers (Scott Boland and Guinevere McGahan) and of course Corey (Caleb Hand) his younger self on the cusp of manhood.
The production features two hours of back-to-back hits from artists such as The B-52's, Wham!, The J.Geils Band, Jefferson Starship, Devo, Kenny Loggins, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, Rush, Cyndi Lauper, Rick Astley, The Who, Survivor and many more.
Appropriate for all ages, performances run from June 29 to July 15, at , 375 W. Briarcliff Road, behind the Town Center building.
Friday and Saturday shows start at 8:30 p.m.; Sunday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $15 for adults; $12 for students and seniors.
