About the Show

The pop doesn’t stop in this smash hit musical! A high school prom in 1958 and a 10-year reunion in 1968 provide the backdrop for some of the biggest hits of both decades, performed by an irrepressible quartet of young women. Featuring a stacked playlist that includes “Mr. Sandman,” “It’s in His Kiss,” “Respect,” “Son of a Preacher Man” and "Lollipop," it’s a joyous snapshot of a musical era.
