The year is 1978. Set in the pleasant town of Waukesha, Wisconsin, three siblings and their significant others reunite for a lavish backyard birthday party. The ugly divorce and subsequent absence of their parents, as well as the looming fear of their own diminishing lives, are the topics of conversation - and a perfectly good way to ruin a perfectly pleasant afternoon.
The performance will be accompanied with a live band covering the nostalgic tunes of Les Paul and Mary Ford and a "Tableau Vivant Series" inspired by John Schneider's script.
Tickets for opening (October 14th and 17th) are $20.00 for general admission and $15.00 for students and seniors. Discounted industry tickets availableMonday nights.
