RIVERSIDE — The Archbishop Carroll High School Freedom Players will perform the highly entertaining musical, “Back To The 80’s” at 7 p.m. March 17-18 and 2 p.m. March 19.
From the era that brought the world the Rubik’s Cube and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes this “totally awesome” show and nostalgic romp through the greatest hits of the decade. Written by Neil Gooding and performed by arrangement with MTI Music Theatre International, “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.
Seventeen-year-old Palmer is madly in love with his next-door neighbor, Tiffany Houston, one of the coolest girls in the school, but she is too busy mooning over Michael Feldman, the hottest guy around. Throw in a “Star Wars” dream sequence, high-energy dance routines, the obligatory 80s party scene, copious amounts of blue eye shadow, as well as some of the most popular songs ever written, and the result is a musical that will delight and amuse audiences of any age.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and senior citizens and can be purchased at https://www.carrollhs.org/freedom-players/ or at the school office.
Archbishop Carroll High School is located at 4524 Linden Ave., in Riverside, just west of the Greene County line.
