A Sophisticated way to give your audience a familiar and nostalgic experience. Using “Rock Around The Clock,” “Hound Dog,” “Earth Angel,” and “Born To Hand Jive,” this show tells the story of a date night in the 50’s. We begin by dancing at the Malt Shop, then our heroes get into a fight (in the middle of the ballad production!) over the girl. We celebrate their victory with a rollicking dance number from “Grease,” returning home at the end of the night with “There’s no place like home.” Fun to play, fun to rehearse, fun to watch, and judges loved it!
