The Temptations. The Monkees. Menudo. New Kids on the Block. BoyGroove. Through all their ups and downs, highs and lows, successes and failures, Boy Bands are here to stay!
Canadian playwrights Chris Craddock and Aaron Macri have taken the classic story of the rise and fall of a squeaky clean boy band and fashioned a ferocious parody that both fans and foes will love! In the vein of This is Spinal Tap and Fubar The Original Banger Classic, BoyGroove is a live mockumentary of the boy band phenomenon.
BoyGroove chronicles the rise and fall of the world's most famous boy band; their friendships, their triumphs and their scandals. From the villainy of the homophobic rapper 'Hypetastic' to the crusading virtue of Andrew; from the reality shows populated by on-again-off-again Kevin and Chelsey, to Jon's dreams of space travel; BoyGroove is all witty dialogue, pop songs and power ballads, and a concert performance that will leave you wanting to call-in requests and dedications.
Original director Kenneth Brown and 2005 cast members Andrew Bursey (Andrew the sensitive one), Jon Paterson (Jon the bad boy), Scott Walters (Lance the gifted one) and Matt Alden (Kevin the leader) reunite for BoyGroove's first commercial production.
