Book & Lyrics by Mark LaPierre
Music by Eric Nordin & Mark LaPierre
May 3-20, 2018
At the Alder Stage in Artists Repertory Theatre,
1516 SW Alder St, Portland, OR 97205.
After standing ovations at the Fertile Ground Festival concert last year, 1980's Teen Musical is back! The writers improved the script and now Staged! is please to present the premiere full production of this pop musical.
It’s 1989 at John Hughes High where every student is fabulous, EXCEPT Samantha, a grumpy social outcast who must befriend all the Teen Supermodels, Vision-Questing Jocks, Fame Dancers, Pop Divas, Real Genius Nerds, and Rebellious Idealists, in order to be allowed to escape. Nostalgia – it’s not just for the breakfast club! Featuring a new score by Mark LaPierre and Eric Nordin in the style of Queen, The Go-Go’s, and the Thompson Twins. A musical to the max for teens of all decades!
Performance on May 17th will be Audio Decribed for patrons who are blind or otherwise visually limited.
