BACK TO THE 80s
Following on from successful productions of Made in Dagenham and Footloose, HQPA productions are taking you BACK TO THE 80s.
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 80s. With references to movies such as Back to the Future, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Karate Kid, BACK TO THE 80s is a nostalgic romp through the greatest hits of the decade.
The story follows the exploits of the senior class of William Ocean High School, as remembered through the eyes of now thirty-something Corey Palmer. Seventeen-year-old Corey is madly in love with his next-door neighbour, Tiffany Houston, one of the coolest girls in the school, but she is too busy mooning over Michael Feldman, the hottest guy around. Michael and his friends are athletic and good looking – the kind of guys that Corey and his two best friends dream of being.
However, while they may not be the coolest guys in school, they are still one up on 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 dance routines, the obligatory 80s party scene, copious amounts of blue eyeshadow, twenty cans of hairspray, as well as some of the most popular songs ever written and the result is a musical that will not only delight and amuse audiences of any age, but will prove that the 80’s actually were pretty cool.
