With book and lyrics by John Wimbs and music by Michael Shaieb and Brent Lord, "Go Go Beach" was featured in the New York Musical Theatre Festival in 2006 and an award-winner of Toronto's SummerWorks Festival. "We're so excited to share this musical fable about the shift in consciousness in America in the mid-sixties," said director Bert Bernardi. "It's more than just a beach party movie parody," he added. "Our Teen Theatre is one of our most popular programs and continues to grow and evolve-we've had to add an extra performance of "Go Go Beach" due to ticket demand."
