It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form. The too-cool-for-school “Burger Palace Boys” are stealing hub-caps and acting tough and their gum-snapping, chain-smoking “Pink Ladies” are looking hot in bobby sox and pedal pushers. The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be rebellious, provocative and rebellious.

Over the past few months I've been, well, cooped up with the lovely folks at Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society at the Chicken Coop, learning more about the wonderfully wacky world of burlesque, and tonight I'll "graduate" with a group performance, and a solo number I've been collaborating on with our fantastic instructors. Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy!
You can buy tickets here - adults only please!
