Overview

It's hilarity on wheels in this hit, award-winning musical comedy for anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired. In this smash Broadway hit, Kira, a beautiful, magical Greek muse, is sent on a quest from the heavens to inspire a young artist to achieve his greatest dream – to build the first roller disco. (Hey...It's 1980!) A delightful musical spoof of the classic Olivia Newton-John/Gene Kelly film, this hilarious roller-skating, disco-dancing adventure weaves a tale of endless fun perfect for the whole family. Featuring popular '80s songs like "Magic," "All Over The World," "Suddenly," "I'm Alive," "Evil Woman," and "Xanadu."

Run time is 2 hours and includes a 15 minute intermission.
