Back to the 80’s is the story of a graduating year of William Ocean High School as they live through their senior year and experience the fun, the heartbreak and the loves of growing up. All set to the biggest hits of the 80’s:

Material Girl   * Walking On Sunshine * Centrefold * Kids In America * I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) *Love Shack * Total Eclipse Of The Heart. * Wake Me Up Before You Go Go *Don’t Worry Be Happy * Video Killed The Radio Star * Footloose * Girls Just Want To Have Fun* Mickey* Glory Of Love * Lets Hear It For The Boy * You Give Love A Bad Name * Nine To Five * * Man In The Mirror * Get Outta My Dreams (Get Into My Car) * Lost In Your Eyes* Never Gonna Give You Up *We Are The World * (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life.

Set in the era when actors became American Presidents, when Bubble skirts were cool, when Atari was cutting edge technology and when mobile phones were as big as bricks. The play is from the era that brought the world the Rubik’s Cube, Max Headroom and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Throw in a Star Wars dream sequence, high-energy dance routines, the obligatory 80’s party scene, copious amounts of blue eye-shadow, twenty cans of hairspray and you have a musical that will delight and amuse audiences of any age.
