  Event Description Time / Location
8/26 - 9/10 Back to the 80's

Join the class of 1985 as they experience the fun and heartbreak of growing up in a totally awesome decade.

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 80's. In the style of movies such as Back To The Future, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Karate Kid, Back To The 80's is a nostalgic romp through the greatest hits of the decade.

Back To The 80's tells the story of the senior class of William Ocean High School as remembered through the eyes of now 30-something Corey Palmer. 17-year-old Corey is madly in love with his next-door neighbor, Tiffany Houston, one of the coolest girls in the school. However, 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 CD's will replace cassette tapes. - See more at: http://www.mtishows.com/back-to-the-80s#sthash.ZBtzyamN.dpuf

This girl loves ghoul rock and roll Off Broadway musical is set in the atomic 1950s at Enrico Fermi High, where the law is laid down by a zany, tyrannical principal. Pretty senior Toffee has fallen for the class bad boy. Family pressure forces her to end the romance, and he charges off on his motorcycle to the nuclear waste dump. He returns glowing and determined to reclaim Toffee's heart. He still wants to graduate, but most of all he wants to take Toffee to the prom. The principal orders him to drop dead while a scandal reporter seizes on him as the freak du jour. History comes to his rescue while a tuneful selection of original songs in the style of 50s hits keeps the action rocking across the stage.

"A musical blast!  Fun for the whole nuclear family!" - New York Daily News

"Don't miss it!  Slicker than "Grease", smoother than "Rocky Horror", bigger and funnier than "Little Shop of Horrors!" - WOR

"Exhilarating! Sharp, spiffy, brighter and better crafted than both "The Rocky Horror Show" and "Grease" put together.  It has musical wit and breathtakingly catchy, rich melodies. - New York Law Journal

"Zombie Prom is a breath of freshness and vitality, an exhilarating sign of spring and renewed life in today's musical landscape of spectacles and revivals." - Martin Gottfried, The New York Law Journal

"Zombie Prom (a toxic schlock opera), a feel-good, user-friendly musical comedy (with) its witty, ribald script and clever-tuneful songs..." - The Miami Herald

"The music by Dana P. Rowe and lyrics by John Dempsey are full-bore teen anthems from start to finish, sung by a group of full-voiced singers who slalom down (and up) every melodic curve." 
- The Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

"ZOMBIE PROM: Kooky, creepy, campy fun...Packed with soupy mock-'50s sock hop tunes and more teen-age turmoil than a John Waters film..." - Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel

"This is pure entertainment with a rock 'n roll beat.  The sound is polished, the lyrics are strong...Trash becomes treasure when Rowe and Dempsey reflect on contemporary pop culture." - Key West, Solares Hill

Music by Dana P. Rowe

Book and Lyrics by John Dempsey

Based on a story by John Dempsey and Hugh Murphy.

Murder and chaos are pitted against love and virtue in this sweeping gothic musical.

The epic struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in the musical phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde. Based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and featuring a thrilling score of pop rock hits from multi-Grammy and Tony nominated Frank Wildhorn & double Oscar and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde has mesmerized audiences the world over.

An evocative tale of two men - one a doctor, passionate and romantic - the other, a terrifying madman; and two women - one, beautiful and trusting -the other, beautiful and trusting only herself. Both women in love with the same man. Both unaware of his dark secret. A devoted man of science, Dr. Henry Jekyll is driven to find a chemical breakthrough that can solve some of mankind's most challenging medical dilemmas. Rebuffed by the powers that be, he decides to make himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the man the world would come to know as Mr. Hyde.
