Thurber Theatre, Drake Performance and Event Center, 1849 Cannon Dr.
This “girl loves ghoul” rock ’n’ roll Off-Broadway musical is set in the atomic 1950s at Enrico Fermi High, where the law is laid down by a zany, tyrannical principal.
Pretty senior Toffee has fallen for the class bad boy. Family pressure forces her to end the romance, and Johnny charges off on his motorcycle to the nuclear waste dump. He returns glowing and determined to reclaim Toffee’s heart and take her to the prom.
The principal orders him to drop dead while a scandal reporter seizes on the story. History comes to his rescue while a selection of original songs in the style of ‘50s hits keeps the action rocking across the stage.
