Jukebox Saturday Night

Developed by Jim Russell

A CWP Mainstage Musical

April 16th - 25th, 2021

Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm. Sundays at 2 pm.

Join us for an evening of the greatest songs of the late 50s and early 60s, sung by four hopeful and energetic teenagers gathered around a jukebox on a Saturday night.

Featuring the hits of Paul Anka, Connie Francis, Elvis, Ray Charles, The Drifters, The Marcels, The Platters, Frankie Avalon, Patsy Cline and many more.

It’s a Saturday night in September, 1962 at Big Bart’s Burger Barn, somewhere in the Midwest.

Head waitress Norma and her teen-aged crew Ellen, Arnie, Margie and Dean are expecting the usual rush of kids when a freak snowstorm strands them at Big Bart’s with no customers for the night.

With nothing else to do, the young foursome settles around the jukebox to pass the time while Norma spends most of the night in the kitchen flirting with Big Bart.

No matter what your age, you’ll love traveling back in time with us to Jukebox Saturday Night!

Presented with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.

Pop Goes America

Developed and Directed by Jim Russell

A CWP Mainstage Musical

June 18th – July 3rd, 2021

Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm. Sundays at 2 pm.

American history takes on a whole new sound in Pop Goes America! This lively and spirited musical uses hilariously (and sometimes movingly) re-written modern pop music to tell the story of our
nation, from the pilgrims to the revolution, the civil war, and beyond.

A re-written Madonna song telling the story of the suffragettes? A re-imagined Adele song bringing the D-Day invasion to life? Thomas Jefferson singing about the Declaration of Independence to the tune of Mambo Number 5? This is Pop Goes America!

Featuring parodies of modern pop hits by these artists plus Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Shawn Mendes, Coldplay, the Black Eyed Peas, Eminem, Pentatonix, Macklemore, Pink, Christina Aguilera and many more.

Presented with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.
