ROAD TRIP! will be the first show back in the company's home theater at Jack London State Historic Park after an almost two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 shutdown.

The ROAD TRIP! creative team includes Susan Draus (Conceiver/ Music Director), Jessica Lee Coffman (Director/Choreographer), Matt Smart (Associate Music Director), Alejandro Senior (Associate Musical Director), Alaina Mills (Assistant Director/Choreographer), Nils Erickson (Sound Designer), Kristina Martin (Costumes Designer), Jeffrey Porter (Lighting Designer), Sarah E.T. Jackson (Production Stage Manager).

"I am thrilled and honored to be a part of ROAD TRIP! - the first show back in the park," said Conceiver and Music Director, Susan Draus. "We wanted to create a show that reminded us of all the good in our country. It has been a rough year and now it's time to celebrate our great nation and each other."

ROAD TRIP! will showcase a diverse style of music - from patriotic to pop, jazz to musical theater, funk to Disney, and much more. The show will cover many cities and states, starting and ending in California. Featuring popular hits songs such as Born in the U.S.A., California Dreamin', Viva Las Vegas, Route 66, Georgia, Empire State of Mind, and more.
