Chanhassen Presents POWER BALLADZ, 9/13

For a rockin' hot flashback to the 80s, Chanhassen Dinner Theatres (CDT) presents POWER BALLADZ playing on The Fireside stage for a limited one-night engagement on Friday, September 13. POWER BALLADZ - the Ultimate 80s Singalong allows you to unleash your inner rock star with 90- minutes of wicked rock featuring killer voices and wicked guitar solos!

In addition, willing audience members can arrive as early as 7pm for "Glam-bush" makeovers provided by the hairstyling artistry of HAIR-O-SMITH. Concert-goers are encouraged to immortalize their 80s flashback looks in the lobby photo booth. Makeovers and photo booth images are provided to concert-goers on a complimentary basis.

Do you remember what song was playing when you had your first kiss? What about your first slow dance? Chances are it was a power ballad -those songs that double as a soundtrack to your life. These are the anthems that will make you want to throw a lighter in the air and sing at the top of your lungs! Audience members will be encouraged to sing along if they choose, or simply reminisce back to the days of their youth - ahhh the 80s! POWER BALLADZ is a loving tribute to the heyday of the hair band, when Aqua Net ruled and MTV played videos and predates the show to which it is most commonly compared to today, Rock of Ages.

Rock out to 80s power bands including: Guns N' Roses, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Queen, Styx, Journey, Heart, Aerosmith, Whitesnake, Poison and many others. They will perform an array of hits including: "Sister Christian," "Faithfully," "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "Dream On," "Alone," "We Are The Champions," "Freebird" and many more.

Created by Mike Todaro and Dan Nycklemoe with Peter Rothstein in 2002, POWER BALLADZ was performed in 2002 at Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis with Todaro and Nycklemoe playing the leads. POWER BALLADZ started as a live performance featuring a mixture of comedy, trivia and music, and began its initial theatrical run at the LAB Theatre in Minneapolis and celebrated its New York debut on August 5, 2010. POWER BALLADZ as performed at Chanhassen will be a concertized version of the original Off-Broadway production.

POWER BALLADZ tickets are $40 per person. A dinner option is available for just $15 per person. Performance time is 8pm. (Dinner seating at 6pm) Bar offerings are available at additional cost in the theatre, in the Hogarth Lounge or in the new BRINDISI'S PUB located next to the theatre. The patio will also be open following the performance for drinks and appetizers available at additional cost.
