Disaster! is a new musical straight from Broadway, featuring some of the most unforgettable songs of the '70s. "Knock on Wood," "Hooked on a Feeling," "Sky High," "I Am Woman" and "Hot Stuff" are just a few of the scintillating hits in this hilarious musical comedy with a book by three-time Emmy Award nominee and SiriusXM Broadway host, Seth Rudetsky, and Jack Plotnick.

It's 1979, and New York's hottest A-listers are lining up for the opening of a floating casino and discotheque. Also attending is a faded disco star, a sexy nightclub singer with her eleven-year-old twins, a disaster expert, a feminist reporter, an older couple with a secret, a pair of young guys who are looking for ladies, an untrustworthy businessman and a nun with a gambling addiction. What begins as a night of boogie fever quickly changes to panic as the ship succumbs to multiple disasters, such as earthquakes, tidal waves and infernos. As the night turns into day, everyone struggles to survive and, quite possibly, repair the love that they've lost... or at least escape the killer rats.

"Disaster! The musical is a nonstop ride that takes the adventurous thrill from films like 'Earthquake', 'Jaws', and 'The Poseidon Adventure' and blends them up into a hilarious farce that gets more and more ridiculous with every scene," said Colin Roybal, Director and Choreographer. "Add in the iconic music of some of the biggest disco-era divas, and you have one giant, magnificent disaster of a musical. I challenge you not to laugh at this production. You can't do it! The cast of 21 is a powerhouse of vocal and comedic talent that will have you both in stitches with laughter and bopping along to the hits of the '70s."

Featuring the talents of: Rob Riney as Chad, Holly Dalton as Marianne, Chris Arneson as Scott, Chelsea O'Grady as Jackie, Brian Trampler as Ted, Patrick Brownson as Tony, Katelyn Kendrick as Ben/Lisa, Jessica Sotwick as Sister Mary, Brook McNamara as Shirley, Eddie Schumacher as Maury and Preston Adams as Levora.
